So you want an SROI analysis and are considering buying in help
If you are planning on commissioning an SROI analysis, there are a couple of questions you should consider.
Should you use an accredited practitioner?
An accredited SROI practitioner will have attended training in SROI and had an SROI report assured. You can find practitioners, and members who advertise related services, in the Members & Practitioners Directory.
Using an SROI accredited practitioner gives you assurance that the person understands and has applied the principles of SROI.
Should you have your report assured?
Regardless of whether you decide to use an accredited practitioner, you will want to know that the work you have commissioned meets the standards set by the network for SROI analysis. Currently the SROI network will assure whether SROI analysis complies with the principles. The SROI Network is currently working to develop an audit of an SROI analysis which would cover principles and data.
You should make a provision in your budget for the cost of assurance.
