Value for Money Reviews

We provide a comprehensive range of VFM reviews tailored to each Client’s needs. Each review will identify waste, inefficiency and opportunities to significantly improve VFM for your customers and stakeholders.

Our success is clearly measured through an increase in the financial performance of our Clients. Since 1999, through our VFM Reviews, we have identified in excess of £2bn of cost and efficiency savings for our Clients across the Housing and Private sector.

Unlike many other approaches, our rigorous methodology originates from the automotive sector, has been finely tuned in the housing sector to incorporate “economy”, “efficiency” and “effectiveness” and lends itself to an objective and informed analysis of each service area of your organisation. With our externally focused “lean” process, service, cost and data-oriented approach, we are experts at collecting and analysing the costs, processes and data necessary to provide high quality, fact-based answers and recommendations.

Clients value the fact that our recommendations are fully quantified in financial improvement and VFM terms.

We recommend solutions and improvements based on real information, not opinion, and through stimulating challenge. Clients also value our ability to gather and analyse large volumes of information, identify and quantify levels of waste and develop clear, actionable recommendations. Each recommendation will form part of an integrated VFM Strategy and action plan.

We offer our services on a fixed and/or performance related basis. The performance basis demonstrates our commitment to stake our own rewards on the success of the Client’s transformation.

“Wirral Partnership Homes are delighted to be working with Value Based Solutions. We have made a commitment to embed Value for Money in everything that the company does and VBS have been instrumental in helping us put together our Value for Money strategy and plan. Our initial work with them has identified some very significant savings and we have every confidence that the next stage of joint working will do likewise.”

“Most chief executives want to believe their organisations are running well, but few ever really take the time to conduct a proper analysis to see if the organisation is operating at optimum. It is this diagnostic that they can achieve”
