David was the Project Manager for the asset management capability assessment reviews of government agencies for The Treasury. He developed the assessment tool that is in use for this assessment, organised the successful delivery of all 17 assessments to a high quality, moderated the results, and presented the outcomes back to both government agencies and Treasury both verbally and in written reports. The project was completed on time and to budget, and was well received by agencies and the Treasury. This experience with the previous evaluations will prove invaluable for the next assessments, in providing continuity and assessment on a like basis.
