network core healthchecks

Does anyone know of any organisations who do health-checks/reviews of your organisations core network infrastructure? I.e. routing out poor designs, disasters waiting to happen, non conformance to best practice etc etc etc. I am specifically only after the physical layer of the network core, not server applications. I wondered if its common to get such an independent review of your setup? Have you ever been involved in such an assessment -  or no people that are?

You can probably get better free advice on here if you posted a drawing or some info about your setup than paying a consultant a crap load of money who will either say something basic like its fine, or the opposite this is all junk here is what i can sell you. Here you will get some honest opinions for free.

Fair point valmatic. I am from a risk section not a network tech section, my main area of responsibility is doing assessments of ERP apps/access control. But I was just intrigued what:

Typically falls under the banner of "core network infrastructure", i.e. can it be broken down into relevant "components" of core network infrastructure.
Typically falls under the banner of non core network infrastructure
What types of thing should be looked at from a risk angle when reviewing core network infrastructure, i.e. if you looking at risks/poor design/disasters waiting to happen.
