Firewood Assurance Service Tool 
Using innovative technology and data analytics to consistently deliver successful project assurance

Introducing FAST


The Firewood Assurance Service Tool (FAST  ) allows you to design and implement your assurance framework consistently using industry best practice.

 When you take advantage of FAST  , you can expect to: 

  • View the library of best practice frameworks and create your own assurance framework

  • Create your review templates and review your initiatives to understand their performance

  • Assign and track actions to completion and get analytics to keep your investment in change on track




Traditional programme assurance isn't working effectively 

  • Existing assurance procedures are time-consuming because they are often over complicated

  • Data is static and inaccessible because it's captured, analysed and reported on using confusing spreadsheets

  • Management often lack confidence as there isn't consistency in assurance without a robust framework

  • Decisions take too long to make because it's difficult to make sense of all the information generated

  • Remedial actions to improve project performance are missed as there is no single point of accountability

  • There is a costly over-reliance on external assurance providers due to resource and skills shortages

  • Lessons from previous reviews are often forgotten in the PowerPoint slides and spreadsheets they are noted on

  • The root-cause of issues aren't identified because findings aren't supported with sources of evidence
