Mobilising for Development (M4D) – Value for Money Analysis

Nigeria

The Project

Mobilising for Development (M4D) was a six-year local governance programme in three northern states of Nigeria funded by UK Aid. The programme aimed to “support local and state level policy makers and service providersto be more responsive and accountable to citizens’ better articulated demands and entitlements, especially adolescent girls (AG) and people with disability (PWD)”.

LAMP conducted a value for money analysis at the end of the programme. The analysis assessed the programme’s VFM based on the 4 Es framework (Economy, Efficiency, Effectiveness and Equity) drawing on programme data and combining this with benchmarking and comparative data. The analysis also assessed whether the improvements achieved by the programme, in terms of service delivery, accountability and inclusion, offered good value for money and in particular whether there was evidence of these improvements being catalytic and sustainable. It also documented lessons learned on measuring and demonstrating VFM in a local governance programme.

Highlights

  • Used benchmarking and comparative data
  • Identified £400k of savings made by the programme
  • Documented evidence of inclusion, particularly in reaching adolescent girls and people with disability
