Readiness Assessment Tool


Fiona Sheil was responsible for co-ordinating NCVO’s programme of seminars, training and advice work on public service commissioning and procurement. Fiona left NCVO in October 2013 but we have retained her blog posts for reference.

To support organisations wishing to apply for funding Rocket Science has developed an Excel-based ‘Capacity Assessment Tool’ to allow applicants to assess their particular strengths, weaknesses and capacity to deliver projects.

There are two main parts to the tool:

  • Organisational health check – This is a series of questions designed to help organisations think about their strengths and weaknesses, which can be used to pinpoint areas for development and to benchmark progress over time.
  • Project management – This section allows organisations to assess the delivery of projects against some key features of successful project management, such as monitoring, evaluation and sustainability.

The tool generates two reports summarising an organisation’s overall health and their capacity to deliver projects.  Access the Capacity Assessment Tool
