Local Government

Client objective:

To analyse the budgets of this large local government body and its associated functional agencies over the seven previous years and use this information to inform the budget committee and help them formulate questions to challenge the next year’s budget submission.


An informed analysis resulting in the identification of economic trends and challenges facing the organisation and its functional bodies; a set of tools for budget analysis that can be used year on year; the identification of areas for the budget committee to probe concerning the budget submission.  “The observations and questions table is great – that’s the kind of high-level work we want …. Overall it is great – we particularly like that there are things brought out we would otherwise not have spotted, and value added to the information with the suggested questions, issues and critiques.”  Scrutiny Manager.
