Financial Information and Value for Money

CHS Group has prepared a Value for Money self-assessment 2016-17 which aims to demonstrate to our stakeholders how we are achieving value for money in delivering our business purpose and objectives and how we are meeting the Value for Money Standard within the Regulatory Framework.

Our aim is to enable stakeholders to understand the return on assets measured against our objectives, set out the costs of delivering specific services and evidence the value for money gains that have been and will be made. A summary of the assessment is included in the CHS Group Financial Statements 2017 and in the Annual Report. Our Value for  Money Strategy aims to deliver the corporate objectives as set out in the Corporate Plan.
