  • Financial risk assessment.
  • Feasibility assessment (e.g. new program ideas, projects).
  • Financial sustainability planning.
  • Business performance measurement and improvement.
  • Advice on business process practice (e.g. in relation to new services or major improvement to processes underpinning existing services).
