Before our clients invest in new or expansion projects, they need to know whether they will obtain support offered by the DTI. As payment is only made once the investment is made and certain performance criteria have been met, it is important to know beforehand that your project stands a reasonable chance of receiving such payments. It is therefore important to work with specialists such as Dectra to obtain their advice and to guide you through the process.

As a first step, we will evaluate the project in broad terms during an initial interview and will confirm our findings in writing. We will then quote and ask for confirmation of our appointment, whereafter the serious work starts. One of our specialists meets with the client to evaluate the project against the requirements of the support program in mind. Our findings and conclusions, including advice on how to structure for success, are confirmed in writing.

We then begin the second stage which involves planning timelines, assigning responsibilities and collating the information required to complete the application documents, culminating in the submission of a complete application.

Successfully claiming the grant for our client, the last stage of our engagement, is dependent on our client's compliance with the performance requirements stipulated in DTI's letter of approval. Dectra monitors the client's actions and performance requirements, providing a "hand holding" support during this process and providing written evaluations which cover important aspects.

Our task is completed only once our client has received the grant or tax support.

In our business, it is possible to measure the success of our service in monetary terms and this enables us to bill our clients on a success basis.
