Assurance

Share on:

It is often difficult for programme and project senior teams to gain an accurate and impartial view on the true health of a project or programme. This is particularly important when they are seeking significant investment to proceed. Assurance is necessary to make sure that preparations are in place and any assumptions are sound.

At GHD, we offer project evaluations and assurance at all stages of a project; from inception through to delivery and close out. Our aim is to provide independent, evidence-based and practical recommendations for improving any aspect of a project’s execution from option selection, to robust scheduling and cost, to capturing lessons learned.

We can also help to develop governance team structures, roles and responsibilities, gateway terms of reference and supporting processes.

Ultimately, we can provide assurance that the project or programme is:

Deliverable – it is likely to deliver the expected benefits within the declared cost / time / performance constraints

Affordable – the level of expenditure and financial risk involved is acceptable in light of our client's overall financial position when set against other priorities, and;

Value for money – it provides the optimum combination of whole life cost and quality to meet users’ requirements.

The scrutiny includes review of subjects such as:

  • Alignment with strategic aims and objectives
  • Approach to governance and stakeholders
  • Availability of funding and resources
  • Deliverability risks issues, such as procurement and commercial; legal and consents; engineering / technical complexity and business impact and criticality
  • Quality of project and programme management

The effectiveness of integrated assurance reviews is dependent on collaboration with the sponsor, the funding body and the programme team to constructively influence the outcome.

With an experienced team in the UK and more than 250 project managers globally, GHD’s Business Consulting professionals are focused on delivering high quality, bespoke service across industry.
