Aquenta was engaged to prepare estimates for various works to assist Netball SA with a grant application for maintenance/upgrade funding. Working closely with Netball SA and the Department for Planning, Transport & Infrastructure (Office for Recreation & Sport), we were able to identify the required scope of service and recommend the most appropriate method for subdividing estimated costs to ensure the best outcome from the grant application process. The work was completed within a very tight time frame to maximise the opportunity to guarantee funding during the months leading up to the last state election.
The process proved very successful resulting in guaranteed commitment for elements of the work from the Special Purpose Grants budget in place at the time. This enabled Netball SA to progress with key components of work and to continue developing a budget bid for the remaining scope. Without the collective ability to identify and work towards the key opportunities/outcomes the project may not have been able to gain funding support.
