The capital projects mainly involve the lead consultant that manages the project on behalf of the client and the contractor that is appointed to build the infrastructure asset. This process starts when the project is identified and approved via the IDP and is completed once the retention periods has passed. The asset unbundle solution follows this process.

Credit Control and Debt Collection
