Why is assurance important?

Assurance provides confidence in your work, and the judgements you have made. It is also a useful learning tool, to assess how you might be able to improve your social value measurement for next time. Assurance also speaks directly to Principle 7 – Verify the result.

What are the assurance criteria?

You can download the Assurance Criteria in full here.

When can I apply for assurance?

You can submit an application during a standard assurance and accreditation round (a two week period in which we receive many applications). Alternatively, you can use the Fast-Track service. This option is much quicker than normal applications and you can submit at any time of the year. It costs an extra £300 but means you receive the results in half the time and do not have to wait for an ‘assurance round’.

The following standard rounds are scheduled for 2017:
