Investment and Project Advisory

S+T has a strong history of delivering complex infrastructure, policy and program initiatives. Our extensive experience in project strategy, business case development and stakeholder management mean our approach to business cases and project strategy is different to our competitors.

The decision to invest in an initiative or negotiate a preferred outcome relies on more than just a good idea and preparation. Our combined strengths in infrastructure planning and development and delivery, investment assurance, program design, policy and strategy analysis, commercial transactions, precinct planning and project management enable us to advise a diverse range of public and private sector entities.

Many firms offer basic business case and advisory skills – S+T’s point of difference is the real world experience the team has developing and implementing practical solutions within the constraints of established processes, accompanied by our understanding of Government itself. Our approach includes value add services such as supporting clients through gateway assurance, Ministerial and Cabinet briefings where relevant, all with a clear narrative and intent to maximise the likelihood of success for the project.

How we can help

Our project and professional experience mean we can help our government and non-government clients to look beyond their day-to-day business and operations to achieve successful project outcomes. We support our clients to deliver logical and coherent proposals that enable defensible decision making at all levels.

We work closely with our clients to build internal capability and focus on understanding where knowledge and expertise can be developed.

Our value add to all of our clients is the support that we offer through our deep understanding of nuances of government investment and decision-making processes. On all engagements we provide process, briefing and communications support, giving clients the tools they need to effectively communicate with decision makers.

Examples of our investment and project advisory services, include: Investment Logic Mapping, project scoping and definition, Capital Investment Proposals, Strategic and Final Business Case development, stakeholder engagement and change management, project assurance management and support, project governance, management and reporting, Program Management Office (PMO) design and establishment, transaction management (public private partnerships) and tender strategy, bid management and preparation.
