Our Latest Products.

Our recent projects include preparing Investment Plans, analysing a survey of families who have experienced Rheumatic Fever, developing a pricing model for general practices, and conducting a literature review on the factors influencing the success of Pasifika learners in workplace settings.

Our Services.

Proposal writing.

We have a strong track record in preparing high quality responses to Requests for Proposals and other funding rounds. We are experienced at preparing Investment Plans for the TEC, and have helped our clients access funding through the Maori and Pasifika Training initiatives and Healthy Families New Zealand programme.

Data visualisation.

We are experienced in translating data into products that communicate and inspire action. For example, we have worked with Auckland Council and Counties Manukau Health to project services and survey data onto regional maps highlighting areas of strength and opportunities for service improvement.

Report writing.

We have extensive experience in report writing. Our major reports include the 2012 Quality Evaluation of the PBRF, a forecast for the Pacific health workforce and a summary of the results of a survey of Pacific families who have experience of rheumatic fever and who live in crowded households.

Data analysis.

We are experienced in the use of data analysis tools such as SQL, and R. For a recent project we used web scraping tools to collate information on the current tuition fees charged by tertiary education organisations that offer undergraduate degrees. This information was then mapped to publicly available information about the earnings of graduates, enabling students to easily compare each degree.

Project management.

We have managed a range of complex work programmes and business processes including the two-year, $2.5 million Pacific Grant Fund. Our approaches ensure that you can have confidence that your products or services will be delivered on time and to agreed quality standards.


We are experienced at designing surveys, conducting literature reviews and analysing the results of quantitative and qualitative data collection.

Who Are We.

Mischewski Consulting is a consultancy specialising in preparing funding proposals, data analysis and visualisation, and report writing.

Our Process.

We closely analyse the requirements for funding proposals and scan the funding environment. Using conversational interviewing techniques we collect information from your staff about how your organisation can best respond to the requirements set by funders. We prepare high quality first drafts drawing on this information and other successful proposals. We then work closely with you to ensure that the final product exceeds your expectations.

Our Approach.

Our first priority it to develop a thorough understanding of your explicit and implicit goals from any project. We then work closely with management and operational staff to understand how your organisation works, and in the case of Investment Plans, how your organisation is responding to Government, learner and employer priorities.

Our Goal.

We want to reduce the friction that you experience in dealing with funders by providing you with flexible, expert advice and support.

Our Mission.

We work with clients who are committed to making a difference in the health, social service and education spheres. We are committed to maximising the time you have to focus on improving the lives of the people you work with.
