An organizational assessment will help you get a detailed view on your project's performance. This includes having a detailed look at your operations, finances, internal controls, human resources, governance and compliance requirements.
The outcome of an organizational assessment can be an efficiency improvement plan, cost reductions, project refinancing or organizational restructuring. We can either advise or help you implement the required changes in close collaboration with you.
In case of a trust issue, Green Crossroads can perform a range of specific audits. If required,
we have also built solid experience with fraud investigations in Africa.
