Who is Anser Advisory

Anser is a national capital program and project advisory firm offering solutions to public and private sector clients implementing capital projects and programs. The consulting services we provide cover the entire lifecycle of capital development starting with early-stage organizational readiness and delivery strategy through managing the tactical execution of projects. Anser has a diverse and talented team of over 300 professionals, including architects, engineers, construction managers, inspectors, project managers, estimators, certified professional accountants, management consultants, financial analysts, procurement specialists, system configuration specialists, and construction auditors.

We operate with a singular purpose: successfully guiding programs and projects from concept to completion. At the intersection of thoughtful analysis and creative innovation, we identify and solve the toughest challenges our clients face. We believe problem-solving is a challenge to be accepted and delighted in, not overcome; and we engage the best minds from every field to develop intelligent processes that are dynamic, innovative and efficient.

What sets us apart

We’re focused: We provide only advisory, compliance, and management services (we are not designers of record or at-risk construction managers). This focused approach allows us to invest in fully developing industry leading services and investment in our staff, as well as managing and delivering projects without creating potential for conflicts or competing interests.

We’re innovative: Although we have deep experience and mature methods of delivering projects, we continually work to design processes and solutions that are tailored to our client’s unique challenges.

We engage for impact: We understand that people build projects, and our people and communities are impacted by our work. As such, we are an engaged organization focused on achieving a positive impact in the economic, social, and environmental aspects of the communities we serve.

ADVISORY SERVICES

Anser’s advisory services include organizational assessments, process analysis, systems analysis and implementation, change management, project delivery strategy, procurement development and support, benchmarking, and project finance. We have extensive experience providing these services within the context of capital program/project delivery and also have vast capabilities in staff augmentation and outsourcing.

COMPLIANCE SERVICES

Our compliance services include funding evaluations and reviews to ensure compliance with local, state, and federal requirements such as competitive procurement (pricing), prevailing wage (Davis Bacon Wage Rate), and eligibility of work for underlying use. We developed industry-leading real time cost review of capital expenditures that can be used to review up to 100% of project expenditures while meeting monthly pay cycles. Compliance services also include construction audits and forensic cost analysis.

MANAGEMENT SERVICES

Our expertise in advisory and compliance services is the foundation for executing our management services. This foundation guides our best practices in project management, construction management, and staff augmentation. Maintaining the highest quality service is our single goal, ensuring we honor our clients’ efforts to deliver projects and create positive community connections.
