Workshop Flyer (PDF)


Value for money is never just about the money – it’s about good use of resources to create value.

Program evaluation can accommodate wider values and evidence, but all too rarely does it include costs. Without understanding costs, we can’t make informed resource allocation decisions. For example, two programs might be equally effective but could involve very different costs.

This workshop provides practical guidance, underpinned by a sound theoretical framework, for evaluating Value for Money (VfM). It focuses on unpacking a process of explicit evaluative reasoning (using rubrics) and the use of mixed methods (qualitative, quantitative, and economic).

Combining strengths of evaluation and economics, the ‘Value for Money’ approach builds on theory and practice that will already be familiar to many evaluators, though there are also evaluators and commissioners to whom these techniques may be new.
