Crown Agents – Value for Money framework

UK

The Project

LAMP worked with Crown Agents, an international development organisation, to develop their corporate approach to Value for Money with a focus on their technical assistance programmes. This was a collaborative process that developed Crown Agents’ own unique selling points into a VFM strategy. LAMP created a VfM checklist to support Crown Agents as they deliver VfM. LAMP also produced a practical guideline for project managers as they develop their own VfM framework for DFID-funded programmes.

Highlights

  • LAMP created a practical guide to think about VfM when bidding for or developing a project
  • Interviews were held with Crown Agents teams so the framework could build on existing approaches and systems
  • A 'brown bag lunch' was organised with over 30 members of staff as a knowledge sharing exercise on VfM

Client Testimonial

Lamp Development provided expertise to help shape our VFM Approach. They worked in a collaborative style, built a strong working relationship with staff and produced practical outputs which is exactly what we asked for. The outputs have already been used by our Project Managers to improve how we report VfM within on-going projects and words have also been included to increase our VfM scoring within bids. Thanks for all the help!
