We will help prevent problems, address existing issues in a timely and proportionate manner, and keep abreast of emerging challenges and opportunities.

Basic Values

To follow accepted technical and ethical standards of our disciplines; do our work fairly and thoroughly; represent our results accurately, objectively, and with a sense of proportion; and complete our work within a reasonable time so that it is available for relevant decisions.

Accountability
To take responsibility for the quality of the work we do and treat similar matters consistently.

Flexibility
To think creatively, adopt new ways of addressing issues tailored to unique circumstances, and build on successful processes to make them better.

Teamwork
To be respectful of others, seek common ground with them as we do our work, and be honest, trustworthy, and straightforward. To be cooperative without compromising our independence.
