How VAP works with clients.png


At Value Advisory Partners we have a clear purpose and focus to maximise and sustain the value that can be obtained by public and private sector clients from their investments. 

We do this through a structured approach using data and evidence to build knowledge to inform sound decision making.

We understand that value comes from multiple sources which can be integrated together to build a complete picture of the system to enable optimal value realisation and return.

The hallmark of our work and approach is collaboration and co-design with our clients to identify, maximise and sustain the opportunities to create and extract value from their investments.

We have a few core principles which we think help to get the best results for our clients.  These are to:

  • Collaborate with our clients to establish a shared understanding of the business need/opportunity so that the right solution is developed

  • Apply rigorous and repeatable analytical methods so that actionable solutions are delivered

  • Understand the commercial and financial benefits of strategies most appropriate to each clients’ circumstances

  • Seek to continually develop new capabilities to ensure our clients are best placed to gain from our knowledge and resources.

Resilient Infrastructure Assessment

Value Advisory Partners, in partnership with CSIRO, has developed a new approach to address current shortfalls in viable investment cases and funding for  interventions to build community resilience and reduce climate and disaster risk.

The Enabling Resilience Investment Framework is an assessment and decision-making toolkit to inform options, interventions, adaptation and mitigation to reduce climate and disaster risks.

The approach aims to reduce vulnerability and risk by increasing a community's capacity to cope and adapt to disruptions or disasters and by creating new value and community benefit through resilience.

Precincts Analysis

When it comes to the planning, design and development of our places, communities and cities, success is dependent on establishing an evidence base that integrates “top down” and “bottom up” analysis, i.e. real data and projections/forecasts.  Importantly, to bring together a “macro” view of “the vision” and the “micro” view of what’s on the ground.  Our expertise makes sense of these macro and micro analyses to optimise outcomes.

Christopher Nones


I am formerly a Microbiologist and Applications scientist doing research, development work and technical communicator. I decided to pursue a career in Data Science as it encapsulates key concepts that I find rewarding in a professional context. These include: pursuing and developing cutting edge technologies; collecting and wrangling data to useful forms; analysing and presenting data to form insights and actions; careful and systemic experimental design; problem solving and story telling. Along the way I’ve discovered a passion for coding and data visualization but am equally enthralled by machine learning and AI and hope to gain more experience in any and all forms of Data Science. In my free time I like to be creative with music and audio visual work.

The quality of the analysis and modelling has been exceptional and this has built a solid foundation for the Master Plan and the Business Case for funding. The Business Case itself is both compliant and compelling to State Government forms and strategies.

The senior officers, Nic, John and George, were diligent in explaining the modelling and approach with our teams, most of whom had not participated in developing plans such as these before. This coaching and support was highly valued and has continued well after the completion of the formal works.

The VAP process of identifying the economic benefits (dis-benefits in some circumstances) allows an informed conversation about the available development alternatives for both cost and value, which enables collaboration between government and the development industry leading to better and faster decision making.

CEO in the Property Development Industry

A priority reason for why we partnered with VAP was to co-design and develop the prioritization framework and guidance was because of VAP’s capabilities and capacities in identifying, quantifying and evaluating novel and exciting opportunities for creating (and exploring diverse mechanisms for capturing) additional value from potential commercial investments.
