KPMG was the first Big Four accounting, tax and advisory firm to set up a dedicated contract assurance practice. For more than a decade, our engagements have been helping organizations identify areas of non-compliance and recover associated potential losses.
Today, more than 500 full-time contract specialists in KPMG member firms in the UAE, KSA, Australia, Netherlands, United States, United Kingdom, and across Europe, Africa, Asia Pacific, and Latin America assist clients with their contract management to enhance performance and mitigate risk.
We deliver strong returns on our engagements – we typically return 2-5% of the contract value or five times our engagement fee.
Our reviews identify historical recoveries, and avoid overpayments going forward.
