Enabling re-investment in public services by building sustainable revenue for government

We are helping government create new revenue streams by applying commercial expertise, transformation capabilities, business management and development experience to maximise the potential of existing assets.

HM Treasury estimates that central government holds latent intangible assets worth £170bn including intellectual property, brand, expertise and data. With the right support, these assets will provide an essential resource to help fund public services for many years to come.

With the Cabinet Office we co-own AXELOS, responsible for developing, enhancing and promoting best practice methodologies including Prince2, ITIL and RESILIA. Investing in the product portfolio, consolidating the operating model and increasing promotion globally is resulting in 10% profit increases annually.

With the Department for Environmental Food & Rural Affairs we co-own Fera Science Ltd under a unique joint venture model, where new growth across wider international markets is funding expansion of capability, whilst continuing to enhance the UK's bio-security.
