  • Has substantially enhanced its reputation for efficiency and value for money

  • Achieves high levels of consistency and standardisation in its operations and business processes

  • Is widely recognised for its development of analytical, actuarial and business skills in its people


To support effective decision-making and robust reporting within government as the first choice provider of actuarial and specialist analysis, advice and assurance.
