Ireland is coming to terms with a new economic reality. Now more than ever, it is critical that spending of government funds be closely scrutinised, so as to maximise the return to the public. The competing priorities are to stimulate economic activity, while ensuring that necessary infrastructure investments are made and that both current and capital spending remain sustainable. Policy-makers require robust and comprehensive analysis of these issues to aid decision making.
Private sector projects are also under pressure in the current marketplace, where fewer opportunities to achieve returns are available. Informed decision-making, through economic analysis of market impacts and opportunities, is crucial to success.
DKM has been undertaking project and programme appraisal in Ireland for the last two decades. Our team has built up unrivalled knowledge of the major areas of public investment and of policy development. We maintain close contacts with the Departments and other bodies responsible for policy and investment, notably the Department of Finance and the National Development Finance Agency. We are uniquely placed to advise and assist project promoters, analysts and decision-makers in the public and private sectors with regard to meeting project analysis requirements.
