Building the case for change – and gaining government investment approval – requires public bodies to produce robust project business cases using the Treasury’s Green Book five case model.

You need to set out the strategic, economic, commercial, financial and management cases to provide clarity for decision making and a clear audit trail for public accountability. This can be challenging for a public sector organisation under pressure. Developing business cases requires focus, capacity and expertise. One that lacks rigour and detail is unlikely to deliver best public value. We can help you to mitigate this risk and increase the likelihood of investment approval.
