Consulting

BDO Consulting delivers specialist advisory services from four teams, each of which have professionals with the specialist knowledge and experience in their industries to provide first class support.

Our team in the UK is based in our offices in London, Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham and Edinburgh. Given the nature of our work, we regularly work alongside our clients in their offices or sites. We also support projects globally either from the UK using the expertise and experience within our specialist teams or locally through our networks.

Infrastructure Advisory Services

Our Infrastructure Advisory team provide support to public and private sector clients on Public Private Partnership projects. We have a senior team of highly experienced advisers who are able to successfully guide our clients from the early stages of preparing feasibility and business cases though the procurement, evaluation and negotiation; building financial models and raising project finance; through to successful financial close and post contract operating/monitoring.

Our team also provides a wide range of commercial advice on structuring joint ventures, performance and payment mechanisms; delivering efficiencies from existing Private Finance projects and secondary market transactions for projects, including refinancing existing deals. The team also has a successful business delivering due diligence reviews of grant funding. The team is consistently short-listed as best financial adviser at the annual Partnerships awards.

Financial Model Assurance Services

Our Financial Model Assurance team delivers a leading service to banks, other funders and sponsors globally who require an independent review of their financial model as part of the due diligence on their project.

Our expertise and long-standing track record in this specialist area means we have reviewed thousands of financial models and are regarded as a leading adviser in this area. In addition to reviewing the cells in the model our support includes reviewing whether the model reflects the contract and we are often required to provide local accounting and tax advice around the assumptions used.

Our model assurance expertise also makes us respected in terms of the best practice we bring to developing financial models for clients and we deliver bespoke model builds on this basis. The team is regularly recognised at industry awards including the Infrastructure Journal awards.

Public Sector Consulting

Our Public Sector Consulting team delivers specialist support in Health and Government (Central and Local). We are particularly recognised for our work in Health and Social Care and are at the forefront of many of the initiatives in this sector where we deliver transformation services underpinned by financial, clinical, strategic and strong programme/project management support.

We are on the NHS England Lead Provider Framework as part of a consortium that has secured a major outsourcing contract for the provision of services to Clinical Commissioning Groups and we are leading the NHS England flexible resource support, to provide consulting skills and resource to the NHS. In Health and Central Government we also have a strong track record support regulators such as Monitor and the Single Source Regulations Office. In Local Government we are known for the successful support we provide on commercialisation.

International Projects Group

Our International Projects Group has a 30 year history of the successful delivery of a range of consultancy assignments in developing nations, transitional economies and emerging markets.

The team provides Public Financial Management to support the institutional development of Ministries of Finance along with diagnostic studies and aid oversight and accountability. The team also provides Public Sector Audit and Accountancy support to Supreme Audit institutions and helps establish International Public Sector Accounting Standards as well as internal audit and internal financial controls.

The team also supports Private Sector Development in relation to Micro Small and Medium Enterprises with access to finance and other financial advice. The team has won a number of awards over the years including best advisory team at the British Accountancy Awards.
