Assessing and Managing Value for Money - Lessons for NGOs

Last Updated: Friday 18 October 2019

This report presents an analytical framework for approaching value for money that can be applied at project, portfolio and organisational levels. It looks at tools, the importance of organisational leadership, integration into working practices, and knowledge, skills and behaviour needed. The report shows that there is no single “right” approach. It places an emphasis on managing for and making judgements about value for money, rather than focusing on strict measurement.

Those interested in improving value for money in their organisations will find a useful structure for thinking about it and practical examples.

Written by MANGO and the Value for Money Learning Group of the PPA Learning Partnership - an initiative of the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) and NGOs in receipt of strategic, flexible funding called “Programme Partnership Arrangements”.
