Our Fees are highly competitive.
NACUW operates an ethical policy of ‘local procurement’, helping to lever in and retain funds within the client’s local economy. We try to do this in two ways.
Firstly as a national network, we are usually able to field Associates who have a knowledge and understanding of the local region. As a result our costs can also be kept lower.
Secondly, wherever possible we try to skill-up local people who might wish to participate within a contract. For example volunteers in a credit union might be trained and sub-contracted to undertake the survey work in a market research study, returning some of the fees back to the client.
There are reductions on our fees for NACUW members
As a not-for-profit, rather than a purely commercial consultancy company, NACUW prefers to work in a collaborative way with clients. Our Teams are happy to share expertise and knowledge for mutual benefit and aim to nurture a close working relationship with the client.
Much of NACUW’s work is gifted to the credit union movement. The fees that are earned through contracts subsidise the voluntary contributions that our members make towards growing our young industry.
