We have more than a decade’s experience advising governments and private consortia on some of the most significant public-private partnership (PPP) projects conceived in Australia.
Business case and reference project
We work with government departments to find potential projects, prepare business cases and undertake gateway reviews then identify and assess procurement options. Our government clients get project approvals by presenting clear, accurate documentation
Technical and service specifications
We prepare clear documentation based on industry best practice and proven projects. That includes detailed technical and service specifications, and key performance indicators against which to judge outcomes.
Public Sector Comparator (PSC)
We prove fully-developed PSC, including all risk-adjusted capital and operating costs—calculated with government’s legal and financial advisors.
Bid evaluation and negotiation
We are trusted technical advisors to governments in the evaluation stage, including evaluating design outcomes, service delivery models and capital and operating costs. During the negotiating phase, we join the government team, clearly articulating the government’s position on the technical delivery of the project and the application of the key performance indicators. We bring with us our focus on probity and preferred negotiated outcomes.
Post contract administration and audit
We support governments administering PPP contracts with clear technical advice and independent contract audits. We are experienced in day-to-day management of the contractor, performance monitoring, state audits and advice on contract variations.
Support to private sector bidders
Where we’re not conflicted out by our government work, we support bidding consortia with due diligence reports that make financial and credit approvals easier.
