We have undertaken many options appraisals and we understand the importance of providing clear and reasoned assessments and evaluations of the existing situation which then inform the emerging proposals. We provide an independent, evidence based analysis of the current situation, the alternative courses of action, and the potential outcomes. We ensure that our studies address the key issues around sustainability, funding and income generation. Our options appraisals adhere to the Treasury's Green Book.

Our involvement with policymakers, funding agencies, national and local organisations delivering cultural heritage services throughout the UK and beyond provides us with a overview of the changing and challenging operating environment. Our regular engagement with a wide range of organisations, and the research that we conduct on their behalf, provides a valuable insight into the issues affecting both the day-to-day operations and the longer-term planning for organisations in the sector which helps us to to develop innovative ways to address the constraints and opportunities for each client.
