Our Clients and Industries

Our clients are diverse in scale, purpose, role, and function. They are the key purpose why our firm exists. We treat our clients with absolute confidentiality—we take this very seriously.Our experience spans the Public and Social sectors, which gives us a unique perspective that we bring to every client relationship.We do not play in all Industries.

Our Values

At 35 South, our four core values act as our “inner compass” and drive everything we do!Individually and collectively, we use our values every day as a “check-down” to make new decisions, provide guidance, and reaffirm our position.

People @ the CENTRE

People are at the very centre of what we do.Our employees, our clients, our partners, and our communities are all central to our focus.Living in the technology space it’s far too easy to focus solely on the solutions without regard for the people who use them to actually deliver the mission.At 35 South, we are incorporating human-centred design into how we operate internally and how we deliver the best solutions for our clients, so people are always “at the centre.”

Set the PACE

For us, setting the pace is as much about setting the right example as it is about leading from the front.Our innovative, human-centred approach to solution design and our client's important issues set the pace of our teams and approach.
We are driven to deliver for our clients and exceed their expectations.
We test our approaches and conclusions rigorously and we are highly responsive and adaptable.
Setting the pace is not only something that we deliver for our clients, it is anchored in our DNA.

Thrive in being UNCOMFORTABLE

When we step outside our comfort zone, we test the status quo, we explore new boundaries, and we experience the “natural high” of learning.Simply put; we grow.And, when we grow, we thrive as individuals, as an organisation, and most importantly, as a culture.Many of our client's priority issues are not simple, they are sometimes ambiguous, and they often change and evolve.This is often uncomfortable. This is where we thrive.

Empower our Community

We leave the campsite better than we found it – in the communities where we live, work, and play.At 35 South, our employees deploy their “can-do” attitude to help our colleagues, clients, communities, and social causes thrive.We are proactive, collaborative, and kind and we bring a sense of humour. We build positive and trust-based relationships within our team and with our clients.It is in this community we support we create value, benefit, impact and purpose.

Financial, Forecasting and Costing

Complex Costing and ModellingComplex costing requires a blend of technical financial skills ls, broad experience and knowledge of the target domain.Our resources are naturally talented in developing complex cost models and the artefacts associated with these offerings.We have worked with many Federal Government Departments on a number of different costing domains. Below is a short summary of our most recent engagements in complex costing and modelling:Procurement cost modelling and analytics (supply chain illumination)Activity-based cost modelling to satisfy the Australian Government Charging Framework's requirementsAcquisition analysis of property and infrastructure to support Government priorities and programsDevelopment of Gate 0/1/2 New Policy Proposal cost models to support business cases.Total Cost of Ownership / Whole of Life CostingIn all domains, the acquisition and sustainment costs of systems, platforms, equipment and facilities is a required, yet difficult thing to obtain.In Government, more often than not the focus of investment decisions largely rests on the acquisition value, whereas the total cost of ownership/whole of life cost is a critical input to all investment decision considerations.The TCO is the critical element in Government procurement as this includes the up-front acquisition of the goods or services, the ongoing operation and maintenance, the mid-life upgrades and enhancements, the training of staff, the costs incurred by the Agency in managing the goods or service and the risk associated with the good or service.Many Agencies only focus on the ‘tender’ price, and if they do this, they are missing a substantial proportion of the TCO.We have deep expertise in deriving the TCO for tender evaluations and we are able to undertake a range of modelling scenarios to determine how the cost of a solution will change depending on risks and other factors over the life of a contract.Our team developed the TCO models for complex Defence capabilities applying a range of approaches and techniques to cover risk, rate of effort, efficiency, indexation and benchmarks.We used known parameters from proven platforms, cost data from other countries (US and UK) and monte-carlo approaches to determine likely cost based on the rate of effort and risk.Cost Reduction, Cost Takeout and Cost Visibility AnalysisThe traditional finance function is unable to support business with the identification of cost duplication, cost redundancy and cost inefficiency.Strategic cost reduction requires a different approach, and the approach must be business driven.
Our team have delivered a number of strategic cost reduction initiatives and focus areas have included ICT spend, SW licencing, contractor spending and overall project/program rationalisation.
We also deploy a prioritisation framework which provides additional transparency on an Agency's cost structure by identifying low-priority / high-cost activities, or where the cost allocation and priority assessment are out of balance.

Business Case, Investment Logic, Decision Support and Prioritisation

Business Case Design and Development35South can provide the necessary support and expertise to organisations to help them deliver successful business case documents to government.We have strong proven skills in business case documentation and planning with the development of a number of tools and templates that are tried and tested and meet the Government and Department of Finance standards.Our support brings with it quality templates cost models and supporting artefacts such as benefits management, governance, risks management, implementation plans costings, options analysis, risk registers, status update templates, and stakeholder engagement templates and stakeholder registers that will support the strategic direction of your proposed program.We also bring with us an understanding of the NPP process and connections and relationships into the AAU at the Department of Finance.The business case support and the templates and artefacts produced to support the business case are:- Proven, tried and tested
- Consistent and provides the support required for a business case submission
- Ensure appropriate alignment with Government budgeting requirements
- Provide additional robustness to the modelling outcomes
- Meets the elements of agile ways of working and the ability to work in a fast-paced dynamic complex work environment
- Delivers a successful business case submission to Government
We can provide the necessary support and expertise to organisations to help them design and deliver compelling and successful business case proposals to the government, including all of the associated and required evidence, documents and artefacts. We have broad and proven skills in identifying business cases and developing and documenting the required outcomes and specifications.We have developed a range of templates and tools to ensure we are able to efficiently and effectively capture the business needs and requirements and then assess the alignment to broad Government priorities and policy objectives. Many of our templates have been reviewed and endorsed by the Department of Finance.We can deploy agile teams, with broad skills and specialities to support Agencies with procurement proposals to Government. Our support also includes quality templates, cost models and supporting artefacts such as:- Benefits definition, measurement and management
- Governance and stakeholder engagement
- Risks management, risk register and treatment plans
- Establishment and implementation plans
- Costings models, the risk-adjusted and total cost of ownership modelling
- Options analysis and assessment models
Investment Logic MappingAll too often organisations are seeking investment from Government without really understanding the underlying problem that they are trying to solve.Investment Logic Mapping is a structured framework composed of a collection of simple common-sense ideas and practices that helps organisations direct resources to deliver the best outcomes.It helps decision-makers to understand and compare investment proposals across different areas of the business and has some confidence in the investment priorities that they set.The ILM is the foundation for good clear alignment of decision-making that is being applied across Government, Corporate, Academic and Not for Profit Organisations.Through a structured framework, it tests the evidence and logic of a ‘problem’ and the business case validates the quality and extent of the evidence that supports the case for investment. The logic of any investment can be easily tested, evaluated and communicated using simple concepts and language on single-page documents (e.g. Investment Logic Map).Through 4 two-hour workshops over a 2-3 week period, participants will test the rigour, logic and evidence of information to support the case for investment. This information is then methodically analysed and provides a clear simple, logically informed evidence-based outcome that can define benefits early and track them.Our team collaborate with our clients using this methodology to develop robust business cases, ensure investment delivers benefits, and enable decision-makers to prioritise investment decisions.Investment / Project / Resource Prioritisation and ModellingIn an environment of limited resources, changing priorities and increased expectations, balancing the allocation of resources to priorities is a challenge.Our experience in supporting Agencies with investment/resource prioritisation is well proven. We have supported Defence with prioritisation across the IIP as well as supporting Defence programs with prioritisation and assessment of savings initiatives to identify which activities to cut, that will have the least impact on capability and strategic priorities.We use a ‘multi-criteria decision analysis approach and have a proven model that can be deployed quickly across all environments.
The model allows the capture of broad stakeholder input and perspectives and allows for a range of options/activities/initiatives to be rated and assessed against the agency's strategic priorities.
The end result for decision makers is a transparent approach to determining high-priority activities, and equally important low priorities activities that should cease. As strategic priorities change, the model provides input into how the change will impact priorities going forward.

Modern Slavery Statement

Where possible, 35 South engages partners and suppliers that aim to support the community by employing vulnerable populations.We promote relevant businesses internally and procure from such suppliers for both internal needs and client work.35 South works with various suppliers across its offices for multiple services, including information technology, finance, marketing, and HR.We also engage in travel booking and transport services and catering and cleaning services for facilities management.While we deal with most of these suppliers directly, in many cases these suppliers will also work with entities with that we do not have a direct contractual relationship.35 South maintains a centralised email address for people to report concerns regarding modern slavery and unethical practices within the firm.The 35 South legal representatives will receive these concerns to determine the best course of action.Risks of Modern SlaveryIn terms of our people, the risk of there being any issues of modern slavery is low as our employment contracts comply with the relevant laws in each jurisdiction in which we operate.Regarding our direct supply chain, there is also minimal risk of modern slavery as our business does not intersect directly with any high-risk industries.We are, however, engaged with high-risk industries indirectly. For example, our building managers engage cleaners to perform cleaning services in our offices.35 South places a specific focus on preventing modern slavery from occurring through its adjacent exposures to high-risk industries associated with its commercial tenancies.35 South has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery.While we always seek to engage with ethical suppliers and vendors, we recognise the need to regularly review our policies and procedures as our business grows in both jurisdictional reach and operational sophistication.Any concerns about modern slavery in our business should be raised by emailing:
