Our values guide the conduct of our work.
Vista Advisory takes the time to understand the unique needs of each of its clients for each engagement.
Depending on what our clients require, we work side by side with agency officers, provide quality senior personnel for internal placements as well as deliver discrete assurance and related projects.
We are committed to ensuring client satisfaction through the delivery of quality work on-time and on-budget. We pride ourselves on our ability to think strategically across a broad range of public policy areas, clarify complex matters for our clients and communicate effectively with senior and public stakeholders, including parliamentarians and their advisors. We deliver credible and respected outcomes for our clients.
Vista Advisory personnel are accustomed to presenting professional work and writing for high-level audiences, including providing executive and board-level briefings and reports for a public audience, including the Parliament.
All our work is conducted in accordance with relevant professional standards and ethical pronouncements, including those issued by AUASB and our professional bodies (Institute of Chartered Accountants and CPA Australia). Where relevant, we also adopt client standards, practices and systems in the conduct of our work, such as for audit offices, and conduct our work in accordance with legislative requirements and mandate. All client work is treated in the strictest confidence.
Our senior staff have high-level security clearances for government work, and we are accustomed to working in secure environments and operating in accordance with the Australian Government’s protective security policy framework.
To further expand our skills and perspectives, we engage the most senior specialists in particular governance and policy areas.
For our audits and assurance engagements, ensuring independence and objectivity is of paramount importance. Vista Advisory will not accept engagements where a threat to our independence exists (actual or perceived) and full assessments of conflicts of interest for all team members are undertaken prior to client and engagement acceptance in accordance with professional standards (ASA 102 and APES 110).
