Consulting Support

Budgets for Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) are stretched thinner than ever before; the challenges that presents means finding ways to improve the quality of services while remaining financially sustainable is more difficult than ever.

KCG’s in-depth knowledge of the HE sector and experience working with HEIs means we can help you improve your performance through people, processes and technology.

With our extensive network of contacts across the HE sector and in the private sector, KCG strategic support services can assist member institutions to seek additional specialist support within the KCG framework with ease, drawing on a wide range of HE sector skills and expertise, and at reasonable cost — or even on a resource sharing basis.

KCG strategic support services are completely distinct and separate from the delivery of internal audit services and other management assurance services to preserve the independence of the assurance function for the member institutions.

Areas of service provision include:

  • Audit Committee training and development
  • Benchmarking and analysis
  • Business continuity planning and management
  • Business process review and re-engineering
  • Change management and organisational development
  • Effectiveness review
  • Functional support (eg Finance, HR, Estates, IT – strategic and operational)
  • Interim management
  • Option appraisal
  • Organisational re-structure
  • Post-implementation review
  • Project management
  • Rapid organisational assessment
  • Staff training and development
  • Strategy and business planning
  • Strategic review and development
