My plan is to choose project subject 15: an analysis and evaluation of the management of an organisation’s working capital over a three year period and its impact on the organisation’s funding strategies.
I was thinking to use 4533: Healthcare providers.
I am trying to find a suitable company through the internet…
I am leaving in Ireland so I thought to choose some local hospitals such as St Vincents or Mater Hospital but their statements are not published….
Might be my approach is wrong?
I am hitting the wall and now I am very worried….
If you could please kindly advise how to find a suitable company with the necessary information available I would be very grateful and probably I would be able to sleep better….
Thanking you in advance.

i have fresh n nothing to know about the OBU RAP. Can anyone advise me about
– how to start, for example, what information should be know in first?
– how to choice a topics? and where can i find the topic lists?
– where to find a eligible mentor, as i need a better grade for better class.
i am highly appreciate for your reply.June 13, 2019 at 9:28 pm
You need to download the latest Information Pack from ACCA Global -this will provide both some information to get you started and give you the list of topics.
To find a mentor you can either get a list from Oxford Brookes (if you are unable to log into the mentoring website), or if you want a better grade try one of the Open Tuition recommended mentors. No one can guarantee a pass or a higher grade but we are sure that statistically using one of the recommended mentors offers you your best chance as they have proven track records.June 27, 2019 at 9:52 am
appreciate to your advice ^^November 23, 2019 at 3:35 am
“For all topics other than 8 and 15, please also note the requirement to base your project
on recent organisational activity or processes rather than historical events. (For this
purpose ‘historical’ refers to activity that took place more than the three full calendar
years preceding the start of the current submission period.) For example if you were
proposing to submit a project in May 2020 for topic 19 the merger or acquisition would
have to have taken place AFTER 1 JANUARY 2017”
this is written on information pack of OBU, my question is if a scandal ocurred in 2014 can i use this for May 2020 submission?
I need guidence on this, please help me.November 25, 2019 at 12:43 pm

Please note that the specific titles for Topic 17 and 20 include the following respectively: “Select an organisation that has been identified as having weak governance structures OR having weak social responsibility practices WITHIN the last 5 years”.
However with your query “if a scandal occurred in 2014 can i use this for May 2020 submission?” -you are asking if you can use this. The answer is no – as the title indicates – you must choose a company that exhibited the week practices at most from 2015 onwards (i.e. within the last 5 years). It is fine if the practices started in 2014 and have continued though throughout other subsequent years.
Regarding time limits – for all other topics the data used or occurrance of the event must be within a 3 year period (with specific rules showing how this applies to Topic 8 & 15 regarding annual reports).
