Strategic Review progress
NBN Co today named the consultancies it has chosen to support the Strategic Review of the rollout of the National Broadband Network.
The company has selected three advisory firms to contribute their services to the review process:
- Deloitte will provide governance and the program management office services to ensure the Strategic Review fits within the parameters and tight deadline for submission set by the Government;
- KordaMentha will contribute to the analysis of the current NBN operational and financial performance;
- Boston Consulting Group will participate in the review of the timing, financials and product offers under alternative models of delivering very fast broadband
The Strategic Review is being led by NBN Co’s Board and executive management, under the sponsorship of JB Rousselot, the company’s Head of Strategy and Transformation.
The company will mobilise a cross-divisional team of NBN Co employees who will work closely with the external consultants.
It will form a key input into the company’s 2014-17 Corporate Plan, which is due to be delivered to the Government in the first half of next year.
The three consultancies were chosen as part of a select tender process announced on 16 October.
