IQA/Project Assurance

Project Assurance

In an environment in which public sector agencies are required to deliver ever-higher standards of efficiency, value and accountability, it’s vital that major projects are completed on time, on budget and to a high standard.

Given the often considerable pressures to perform, it can be easy to cut corners and lose track of the details – putting your projects at risk of inadequate governance and financial management, ineffective risk management and poor-quality communications.

How can you ensure best practice project management and governance in your organisation, every time?
