Business Case Development

Our business case work includes both capital and non-capital projects and can include support at each stage of the business case development process from problem definition (the case for change) through option identification and analysis (strategic business case) to option selection and deliverability (detailed business case).

Underpinning our support at each stage are our technical capabilities including:

·      Facilitation techniques

·      Cost-benefit analysis

·      Financial analysis

·      Commercial analysis

·      Management analysis

For our government clients, our business cases are prepared in accordance with business case guidelines and consistent with gateway assurance processes.

Examples of recent work include:

 

NSW Environment Protection Authority - Asbestos Coordination, Clean-Up, and Awareness Initiative 

Australia’s wide spread use of asbestos during the twentieth century (from 1930s to 1980s), and its history of mining and producing asbestos since the 1900s, has left an asbestos legacy across NSW, in both the built and natural environment, that will need to be managed for many years to prevent asbestos-related disease in the state.

In 2015, there were an estimated 4,152 deaths in Australia due to asbestos-related disease[1]  – more than 3-times the number of fatalities on Australian roads in the same period (2015: 1,209[2]).

NSW Environment Protection Authority led the development of a proposed 4-year initiative to help prevent asbestos-related disease in the state through the improved safe management of legacy asbestos and more comprehensive asbestos education and awareness.

We supported the funding submission through the development and preparation of a business case, including cost-benefit analysis.   The submission was successful with funding commencing in 2018/19.
