CIPFA Property Services value for money exercise (VfM)

2016 Exercise: now including the former National Property Performance Management Initiative Indicators (NaPPMI)

The financial pressure on public services seems to be increasing day-by-day and many organisations are looking for different ways to deliver their property services. Time and time again, however, we are seeing rash decisions made on future delivery options without understanding internal performance levels and costs compare to others. Without this information it’s impossible to make prioritised decisions on cost reductions or sourcing options.

The CIPFA Property Services Value for Money Exercise 2016 offers a unique opportunity to examine value for money in relation to the management and delivery of property services for a local authority. It covers the full spectrum of property related activity including strategic asset management, design and construction, maintenance and even the management of investment property.

New for this year and in response to many requests we have incorporated many of the former NaPPMI indicators to give the most comprehensive performance benchmarking service for property within the local government sector.

This is the fifth year we have been carrying out the service and authorities have benefited by identifying areas of weakness and driving through improvement. Previous participants also highlight the added value of the on-site visit by one of our experienced staff, which provides consistency in interpretation and reassurance of the data comparison.

Our detailed final report (which last year was over 100 pages long) provides essential cost and performance information to provide you with solid, data-related evidence to support decision making in these challenging times.

Full details of the exercise can be found attached, if you would like to participate please complete and return the attached order form via email to E: property@cipfa.org closing date for inclusion to participate is Friday 24 June.  Onsite visits will be arranged for July, August and September with the final report being issued in December.

If you would like to discuss anything about the service please contact David Bentley - Head of Asset Management direct on T: 01332 559780 or email E: david.bentley@cipfa.org.
