Case Prompt

Your client is the Knight’s Watch Municipality. Their governor, John Snow, has engaged you, explaining that an evil army composed of White Walkers plans to destroy all of Westeros. He tells you that the Northern Kingdom is the only fortress capable of stopping this force. However, the wall is severely damaged from previous battles. Governor Snow needs our help determining what steps to take in repairing the wall before the White Walkers arrive. 

Q1.) How would you structure your approach to advise Governor Snow?

Q2.) Governor John Snow would like to do an initial cost estimate before approaching contractors. What is the projected cost of the wall repairs in Westeros?

Q3.) How much tax revenue can the Municipality generate for the project if their budget is restricted to allocating .02% of revenue towards infrastructure projects?

Q4.) Given the cost and tax revenue, Governor Snow submitted a statement of work and received 6 bids from contractors. Which contractor should Governor Snow choose?

Q5.) The Iron Bank of Braavos approaches with an offer to provide a $5M loan. What factors should you consider when deciding whether Governor Snow should accept the loan?

Q6.) We are meeting with John Snow shortly regarding our findings, what do you think we should recommend?
