The Security Plan

Once the independent security risk assessment has been concluded, you will be presented with a living document stipulating and explaining all the risks identified as well as the options for solutions detailed within the security plan. The plan will show you how to eliminate the threats as revealed within each level.

The very nature of the document being alive means that it will continue to grow. Although we may have concluded the risk assessment, any new information researched or uncovered will be provided to you in the future, ensuring that you remain up-to-date with all relevant matters regarding security. Additionally, any questions you may have shall also be responded to in writing so that they may be attached to the assessment for research purposes and re-evaluation at a later stage.

There are two types of services.

Most of the time, we make use of a project fee. To arrive at the pricing structure that we present to the client, we add all of the data that the client provides into a grid system that makes use of various variables and other pertinent information. Pricing structure is known as the Project Fee. It includes everything from the onset of the Assessment to the delivery of the document.

We need to assess larger companies with more than five buildings, departments, or branches spread over South Africa. Since a Risk Assessment takes longer, we cannot assess all these buildings or departments simultaneously. Therefore, more buildings that require assessment, the more time we need to complete the process. Hence, we have a retainer option available, as this helps with budgeting and planning.

Please note;

We aim the retainer option at larger companies with more than one site that requires assessment. Alwinco does not offer the retainer option for single projects since we complete these projects in much shorter timeframes. Larger companies typically spread their timeframe over six months to a year, making the retainer option viable.

Retainer Option

A retainer option is available for certain Estates. We will charge most Estates the project fee since we will complete it in less than 50 days. However, some Estates qualify for the retainer option based on the size of the problem or if they need assistance managing and controlling their security structure.

Some Estates

Do not have a dedicated Security Manager and struggle to convert the written document to the operational and management phase. For these types of Estates, we will charge a project fee to conduct and finalize the Assessment. Then we will go over to a retainer fee to assist with the rollout and implementation of the security solutions and the management thereof.

At Alwinco, we are firm believers that a risk assessor is not part of the solution. However, there are times when the company or estate needs guidance on how to switch to the operational part once they have received the Security Risk Assessment document. In such cases, our team is readily available to provide assistance and support throughout the transition process. This is usually a six month or one-year project and is available on a retainer basis.
