Audit & Assurance


Our assurance services help clients maximise their commercial opportunities and minimise risks. We help identify areas of risk and help clients to prevent or mitigate them.

We use tried, tested and proven assurance services to help clients with business solution health checks and compliance reviews. Our adaptable service methodology also helps prepare for key changes to existing markets and development of new ones.

Our services help organisations develop processes to ensure that they are robust, scalable and compliant against regulatory and best practice standards. We have proven experience in designing assurance frameworks to best support our clients and provide a unique level of practical insight and experience.

Key assurance projects we have been involved in include:

Energy – project delivery, market readiness, market change and new entrant assurance services to the Retail Market Design Service (RMDS) in the Republic of Ireland and in the GB electricity market as the assurance services provider to the MRA Service Company (MRASCo).

Smart – establishing an independent assurance scheme, as the Smart Meter Device Assurance (SMDA) Scheme Operator, to ensure interoperability and interchangeability testing for smart metering equipment. We also provide independent performance auditor services to the Data and Communications Company to assess the completion of key milestones for the Smart Metering Implementation Programme.

Water – working with a number of water companies to provide customer switching assurance and testing services. We were also key in developing and delivery the market design for the water market in Scotland and in ensuring that companies were ready for the market changes taking place.
