Programme Assurance

We help organisations ask the right questions and make the right decisions to assure successful outcomes.

Delivering certainty in a changing world

Delivering a programme on time and within budget is challenging. Maintaining focus and keeping multiple projects on track when people, technology and customer requirements are in constant flux is not for the faint-hearted. 

We hear you, and we have lived this experience many times.

Choose to work with an independent assurance partner who has developed an expert toolkit and proven methodologies to increase the likelihood of a successful programme outcome.

Key areas of programme assurance

Risk & Compliance

Implement and monitor operational risk mitigation programmes to ensure compliance with global financial regulations.

Delivery Oversight

Monitor and review operations and policies to ensure your programme complies with applicable laws and regulations.


Review and evaluate the quality, performance and adherence to the statements of work to ensure expected delivery outcomes.

Programme assurance benefits at a glance

Partnership is vital for success

Choose a partner to support your programme ambitions and drive successful outcomes. 

Delivering complex projects is not on most people’s to-do lists, yet many organisations insist on utilising under-skilled internal resources to save money – which almost always backfires. 

You may not require the services of a full-time programme assurance team, and that’s ok. We can provide top-quality outsourced expertise as and when required.

Partner with a trusted team to leverage your people’s domain expertise, effectively manage risk, improve quality assurance processes and implement effective governance.
