NewFinancial Modelling and Aqua Book

Using analysis is central to decision making. This is reflected in the Treasury’s Aqua Book: Guidance on producing quality analysis for government. Financial modelling is a frequently used method of analysis. Yet the history of government projects is full of examples where errors were made in developing financial models or in interpreting their results.

This training will explain the background to the best practice set out in the Aqua Book and will show how the common pitfalls in using financial modelling can be avoided. The training will also consider issues of how to deal with uncertainty which arises from the current economic downturn.

The default format of this training will be provided as a day’s course in a classroom setting. It can also be delivered as a series of two or three webinars if online training is required.
