Value for Money (VfM) Indicators are the leading benchmarking tool for assessing value for money in the public sector. HM Treasury specifically recommends collecting and reporting against indicators, for organisations with more than 250 employees.
VfM Indicators have the widest coverage of back office functions, which are under scrutiny in many parts of the public sector at present. You can assess performance of finance, human resources, information and communication technology, estate management, procurement, legal functions and communications.
VfM Indicators will assess your organisation’s performance, and pinpoint its strengths and weaknesses, helping you to make more informed decisions on budget and improvement. The system also provides you with solid, data-related evidence to support decisions.
