Congratulation to Executive Committee Member, Ceyda Özgün for New Assurance Report!

Category: Announcements Date: 25 May 2022

Our Executive Committee Member and Social Impact Coordinator, Ceyda Özgün, recently submitted her SROI Evaluation report of Turkey Grameen Microfinance Program to Social Value UK for Report Assurance checking alignment to the SVI (Social Value International) Report Assurance Standard. The TGMP SROI analysis had the Assurance Report as the report was found to be satisfactory and consistent with the Eight Principles of Social Value.

SVI published an interview with Ceyda Özgün with the Assurance Report news:

SVI: Why did you choose to apply for the assurance process?

Ceyda Özgün: As Social Value Principle 7 suggests that in a SROI analysis subjectivity is inevitable. Therefore, an appropriate independent assurance helps us to understand whether our judgements are reasonable.

SVI: Is there anything that you gained or found useful from the accreditation process? And what are the next plans for your organisation?

Ceyda Özgün: Having the opportunity to discuss with the assessor is so valuable. Each assurance process provides new perspective that reflects positively to next analysis. It is a great learning process.

If the ultimate goal is optimising value, then we need to be sure we have conducted social impact analysis by applying principles properly. This can be achieved by the assurance process.
