FPM are one leading firms in carrying out EconomicAppraisals and would have carried out over fifty Economic Appraisals within the last six months for a variety of organisations, including SEUPB, DETI, IFI, DEL, CFNI, Co-operation Ireland and DARD. In addition to this, we have also carried out over thirty Value for Money Appraisals in the same timeframe.
We have an experienced team of consultants and are able to deliver assignments within a tight timescale, clearly identifying any potential issues and recommending a number of conditions which will help to address these issues. All Economic Appraisals are carried out in accordance with the Northern Ireland Preface to the Green Book, last updated in 2003.
With each assignment, a number of key stakeholders will be contacted to ensure that there is a need for the project, that the project meets that need, and that it will not displace other facilities in the region. Each viable option identified is then costed and assessed against non monetary factors. Key issues such as additionality, ability to deliver and sustainability of the project are also examined.
Our Business Plans can be taken to a variety of potential funders to secure finance, but primarily should be used by the company as a management tool to achieve future growth and ensure targets are being monitored and successfully delivered.
