Liability assessments: Deloitte’s Capital Projects professionals realize that no matter what economic and financial environment is currently prevailing, all companies need to have a handle on their assets and liabilities in order to unlock value going forward. Our Capital Project professionals help our clients understand how accurate and timely reporting of project liabilities can make the difference between a project being successfully completed on time and within budget, or having to deal with claims and cost over-runs. Our Capital Project professionals have assisted our clients to unlock value by determining the correct quantum of realized and unrealized project liabilities, identifying unrecorded or missing liabilities, helping clients understand the existence of time lags within their existing reporting mechanisms, and helping mitigate / rectify significant weaknesses in timely, accurate reporting for upper management which hinders management from knowing the true picture of their projects and developments..
