Intelligent Monitoring - an element of Financial relationships with third sector organisations

Charities that receive public funding have to account to government funders for how they spend it and should show the impact they have achieved with it. But the cost of producing this information must be proportionate to the risks and benefits involved. Cutting unnecessary red tape can free up time and money that would be better spent focusing on the key services charities and others provide. The term for achieving this balance and avoiding poor practice is ‘intelligent monitoring'.

Pro Bono Economics

Pro Bono Economics matches volunteer economists with charities wishing to address questions around measurement, results and impact. Charities are facing increasing pressure to measure their performance and results to quantify their wider impact on society. We believe that the skills and tools economists have can be used to help third sector organisations answer questions that are being asked of them and, in doing so, economists can put their technical skills to use closer to the front line.
