that are essential for operating in hostile regions.

Our Monitoring and Evaluation Unit provides a valuable, independent capability for your organisation to track and evaluate the progress of programmes and projects worldwide.
Our experts can work remotely and deploy globally to suit the needs of your organisation. We can design organisational metrics to monitor and evaluate your operational outputs as well as make recommendations on future theory of change developments.
By partnering with us, organisations can remove the significant time and labour burden of managing payroll, allowing them more time to focus on their core missions.
We take care of all the intricate details, thoroughly analysing labour and taxation laws in each territory where our clients operate and then customising each payroll system to meet the unique needs of your business. Our systems use the latest technology to ensure that, without fail, staff are paid in their local currency, on time and according to their contracts, without commission and conversion charges even in the most complex regions.
SSGAs provide organisations with an impartial and expert evaluation of their security system architecture. Our assessments offer a tailored understanding of potential issues within security processes, and identify risks to both the employees and operations. A security system strategy accompanies each review to address any identified gaps and strengthen security measures.
SSGAs can be conducted either as independent projects, or combined with an SRA to gain a comprehensive understanding of physical and system vulnerabilities, as well as the necessary steps to mitigate them.
