Project Risk & Programme Assurance
For a project to succeed it must deliver on time, to budget and to the required level of quality. However, the successful achievement of these objectives is threatened by numerous risks. The effective identification and management of these risks is therefore critical to success.
Whether you are directly involved in running or overseeing projects or you’re a head of Internal Audit with significant projects on your audit plan, we can provide you with an independent assessment on the current status of a project in addressing the risks that may threaten its success or with support to keep it on track.
