Public testing of the online platform was announced on 16 November 2016 at the Investing for Good Conference. Public testing will close on 28 February 2017.
The NGO Benchmarking Model is a capability development tool, designed by the Social Innovation Council, to help NGOs develop the robust, customer-centred operations needed to deliver efficient, high quality and innovative programs and services. By completing self-assessment against the model, NGOs can identify their operational strengths and any areas for improvement. Your organisation can use this information to guide strategic planning, business operations and staff capability development programs.
The Social Innovation Council have developed an online platform that makes it easy for NGOs to gauge their performance against the model by answering a series of questions about their existing policies and business practices.
You can access the platform here.
This is a “preview version” of the platform, where your organisation can explore the platform and gather the evidence and resources needed before the NGO Benchmarking Model is implemented next year. Please note that as this is a “preview version”, your organisation’s benchmarking results are not valid and will not be used by the NSW Government in any way.
The Social Innovation Council also encourages you to complete a short survey afterwards. Your feedback will help them to improve the platform.
Please note that any information provided by your organisation during the preview period is confidential and will only be used to inform the development of the benchmarking model and online platform.
