Before investing in new businesses or projects, you need a full understanding of the financial aspect, risks and potential reputational issues of partners. Robust due diligence is the key.
Every public sector entity has a duty to manage resources responsibly and achieve value for money. Due diligence isn’t a tick-box exercise, but a key decision-making process. It's crucial when considering proposals from third parties, and should be proportionate to the risk and value of the transaction. Our work helps decision-makers understand the project’s viability, status of delivery partners (financial stability, governance, controls and reputational history) and subsidy control issues.
