Build trust, transparency, and cost control

Government agencies, private equity investors, and owners are all accountable for controlling project costs and preserving the reputation of the project. The proper controls and oversight environment can mitigate fraud, waste, and abuse  throughout the project cycle. They  go a long way toward building a culture of trust, finding   cost savings, and helping ensure the funds are used as originally intended. Independent advisors preemptively address project vulnerabilities to  mitigate suspected fraud, waste, and abuse and show they deliver on promises while keeping projects on time and on budget. 

Preventive measures create positive outcomes

Our work has shown effective monitoring programs create project savings through controls during the full lifecycle: design, prequalification and award phases, project execution, and post-delivery operations and maintenance. Also, when a compliance and monitoring program is instituted from project inception and used consistently, accountability is communicated clearly to all parties and the public. Our team of accountants, forensic examiners, field investigators, and legal services professionals  work with owner entities to identify key concerns and exposures. We then immerse ourselves in the project to oversee it without impeding the critical path of construction.
