Our Projects

Examples of recent projects:
Financial diagnostics, resourcing models & strategic planning

University financial and capital analysis

Department of Education

This 2014 project was an analysis of the finances and physical infrastructure of Australia’s 37 public universities to provide advice to the Department of Education regarding each university’s current infrastructure investment and management practices as well as their capacity to develop new infrastructure assets.

The results were presented to the Higher Education Infrastructure Working Group, established to advise the Government on current practices and future options for supporting universities’ teaching and research infrastructure needs. The Working Group’s members are Philip Marcus Clark AM and Emeritus Professor Denise Bradley AC.  The analysis prepared by PhillipsKPA has formed the basis of consultations by the Working Group with each university.

Application for funding

A large dual sector Victorian University

We identified a funding opportunity for the University - a state government program established to put TAFEs on a more competitive footing and to increase the capacity of TAFEs to meet student, industry and community needs.  We assisted with the development and submission of a number of successful funding bids in the areas of learner support, program delivery, capability building and developing assets to meet community need.

Review of financial projections

A state TAFE authority

A high level review of financial projections to assess the accuracy of the financial model, and to provide recommendations regarding future modelling.

 

Optimising the university resource allocation model

A large regional university in NSW

An independent analysis of the University's existing budget framework (the budget process and the budget model) and the development and recommendation of a new budget framework aimed at ensuring the University's financial sustainability.

Review of state government schools

A state government department of education

We are members of the panel established by the government to undertake two types of school review (peer and priority reviews) and to provide school-based intervention services for government schools in the state. In undertaking these reviews we conduct an in-depth examination of a school's performance by analysing the school's self-evaluation and other relevant data, and, where required, conduct intensive field work in the school, liaising with regional and central Department staff as required.
