Economic case making

Existing Service Outcomes and Costs

What is the service and how will you benefit?

Our economic cost benefit diagnostic and analytical service reviews existing service outcomes and associated costs. We look at how much existing services are costing, how often chaotic individuals are using the services, and the resulting costs.

Who is the service for?

Our service is ideal for local strategic commissioners. It will also be useful if you have a budget and wish to understand how your resources are currently being used.

What is included?

  • A desk-based data audit to review all relevant outcome indicators and identify any gaps in performance intelligence.
  • An outcome review to establish a comprehensive baseline covering performance, outcomes, redistributed costs and effectiveness of the services being delivered.
  • A value for money assessment of existing service provision focusing on costs, benefits and potential areas for efficiency savings.

Investment Strategies

What is the service and how will you benefit?

The second stage of our Economic Case-making service involves the development of an Investment Strategy. Informed by the value for money assessment undertaken during stage one, the Investment Strategy advises how to maximise the opportunities and outcomes from current and future investment. This includes specific investment and intervention recommendations – over the short and medium term.

Who is the service for?

This service is ideal for local strategic commissioners. The service will also be of interest to you if you need to make the economic case for a new service or innovation within an existing service.

What is included?

  • A scenario based sensitivity analysis, based on the implementation of a new service and associated improved outcomes to quantify the potential benefits and cost savings.
  • An Investment Options paper which sets out a range of potential options for how future investment could be used to maximise value for local communities. It will also highlight how you can respond to future economic and social demands.
