They need to be confident that they are:
Receiving value for their spend

Over the past ten years we have provided advice and support on £55billion of cost reimbursable and target cost contracts, helping our clients to recover more than £100million in overcharges and paying for ourselves, on average, ten times over. Using our unique concentration of expertise we bring confidence and transparency to our clients that:
Overcharges are being prevented and recovered
Unnecessary commercial risks are identified and addressed
The potential for dispute is recognised and dealt with
Clients can rely on our advice as we are independent. We don't work for contractors or for other consultancies and can express our opinions free from any constraints driven by conflicts of interest.
