Savings arising from audited projects



We have completed many projects that have attracted Government funding.  These are generally projects in the manufacturing sector that are aimed at delivering maximum savings within a short time scale.  They are short projects, but really demonstrate the effects of "a fresh pair of eyes."  The savings arising from these projects have been:


  • Calculated by us upon completion
  • Agreed and signed-off by the client
  • Checked and approved by a representative of the funding provider (normally MAS)
  • In some cases, audited by a Government official

As such, they have to be an accurate and true account of the projected benefits.  They are also savings that impact upon the P & L account - not an often-used Government metric, Gross Value Added, which relies upon an increase in sales turnover.  A complete list of the projects and savings is included below - the links refer to press releases and official case studies:
