The Authorization for Expenditure (AFE) process is the primary cost control method for capital projects in which energy companies create and approve project funding proposals and allocate capital from the board-approved budget. Clients have expressed that the current AFE (Authorization for Expenditure) process is fractured, leading to inaccurate cost estimates and unsubstantiated strategic decisions. Inaccurate AFEs aren’t a single project problem, it’s an enterprise-wide budgeting issue.
