The Scottish Futures Trust (SFT) works to improve the efficiency of infrastructure investment in Scotland, with the goal of providing better public services with greater value for money. In 2012/13 the SFT recorded £131 million in savings and benefits secured.
Benefits tracking is essential to the SFT’s work and planning and the SFT requires an external and independent validation of its management’s quantification of benefits delivered each year. As a result, LSE Consulting has been charged with analysing, for the fourth consecutive year, the SFT’s annual Statement of Benefits report to find ways in which they can better help the SFT achieve its strategic goals. LSE Consulting has developed and planned the implementation of a rigorous methodology for assessing the SFT’s identified benefits, increasing the accessibility and clarity of the annual reports for a wider audience.
