BDO helped a working group within SEMLEP assess six shortlisted GPF loan applications ranging in value from %A3250,000 to %A36m. During the first phase of work, we performed an initial high-level review of applications and reported to the board. We undertook a more detailed review of five selected projects at phase 2, which included interviews with project principals and an assessment of stakeholder organisations, project feasibility and funding requirements.
“BDO worked closely with us to help the board make informed decisions about which GPF projects to take forward and how best to proceed. Their reports were clear and to the point, containing recommendations which we could use to take specific action. They understood the critical issues. The BDO team kept us informed throughout the process and had a flexible approach, which helped us to meet some challenging deadlines.”
