Benchmark your back-office with our VfM Indicators

Benchmark your back-office with our VfM Indicators

Value for Money (VfM) Indicators are the leading benchmarking tool for assessing the value for money of back-office functions in the public sector. 

VfM Indicators have the capability to improve the performance of your back office to contribute to savings and maintain service delivery in the areas of finance, HR, ICT, procurement, estates, legal and communications.

They will provide you with solid, data-related evidence which assesses your organisation’s performance and pinpoints its strengths and weaknesses, which will help you to make informed decisions on budgets and improve your use of resources. Moreover, you will be able to compare your financial performance with your peers and demonstrate your commitment to enhancing efficiency.

We are continually expanding the depth of reporting available, drawing on our extensive historical database.  By taking part, you will be able to compare your organisation with a broad range of members across the public sector.

Take part when YOU want to – No need to wait for other Members to submit data

You can undertake the exercise at any point between now and the end of 2016. Return data as best fits with your own requirements and we will email you comparative reports against both your sector and the wider public sector within 15 working days.
