Increasingly, governments and other funding agencies are interested in assessing whether they are getting best value for money from projects and programs funded. Cost Benefit and Cost Effectiveness analyses are two precise methods for determining whether a project is worth undertaking given a selected point of view. Depending on the type of project either monetary benefits or physical effects are compared to costs. The point of view determines, what costs and what benefits or effects are considered in the analysis. Indigenous Management Group, Inc. is committed to evaluating costs and benefits from the perspective of society, with particular focus on the costs and benefits as they accrue to First Nations communities.
We have over ten years of experience in providing financial planning services to First Nations and First Nations businesses. Our services include budgeting and cash management, financial forecasts and projections, and preparation of First Nations Remedial Management Plans.
Assessing wealth in today‘s global economy is a challenge to anybody. To Indigenous peoples, who often lack the resources, capital and experience required to even enter the global marketplace, the challenge is even greater. Establishing partnerships with non-First Nations firms is an excellent way to meet this challenge. For non-First Nations firms, partnering with First Nations companies is an opportunity to expand their market, develop new networks and learn from traditional wisdom and experience. Indigenous Management Group, Inc. has experience in partnering directly with non-First Nations companies and in facilitating partnerships for other First Nations firms and the non-First Nations private sector.
