Business Case Development

The Business Case is the key component in the decision making process for new investment. It requires a range of specialist skills to ensure that the preferred option is the best solution for our client’s requirements. Our approach is HM Treasury compliant and based on their ‘five case model’. This approach ensures that our client considers a comprehensive list of options that meet their requirements, and receives accurate and detailed forecasts of the risks, financial and commercial issues associated with each option, to ensure that when evaluated and the recommended option is selected, it is achievable, deliverable and affordable.


Using a range of facilitation and consultation techniques we are able to quickly understand the key issues, client and stakeholder requirements and operational issues, which enables us to establish the key output requirements that need to be met by the project options. This process will be critical to both the OBC and Equality Impact Assessment.

Market Appraisal

Establishing the net demand for facilities and services is essential where the investment is reliant upon third party income to meet its operating costs. We investigate the market using national datasets and our own database of information to establish the market gaps and opportunities, to ensure that we are confident in the viability of our proposals.

Options Analysis

We look at each option individually and determine income and expenditure projections, capital and lifecycle costs, capital receipts, the valuation of risks and calculation of the optimism bias and NPV. We also assess the non-financial benefits that each option can deliver to meet the outputs required.

Financial Modelling

In order to capture the financial impact of each of the options, our financial models take into account the capital and revenue costs, risk values, optimism bias, project financing, cashflow and Net Present Value, which are used to compare each of the options. Our fully audited financial models also provide a number of different scenarios and sensitivities to be undertaken that test the value for money assessment and comparison of each of the project options.


The evaluation model is fully tested and is flexible to meet our clients requirements in relation to the weighting and scoring of each criteria and provides a structured and objective approach to the evaluation of each option.

Solutions that Work

Our HM Treasury compliant approach provides our clients with a preferred project option that is achievable, deliverable and affordable. We develop the Business Case from conception to delivery and have a strong track record of delivering successful projects that compare well to the outcomes of the Business Case.
