How we're providing value by saving you time and money.
£295m of value, savings and efficiencies to the UK higher and further education sectors through the use of our services in 2015-16
These savings are achieved through direct cost savings, cost avoidance (time savings) and the value of services of which the costs would be prohibitive if Jisc did not provide them.
The figures below shows a breakdown of the value, savings and efficiencies across our headline services and a sector-level figure for other services used (where value, savings and efficiencies are calculated).
Our headline services account for 95% of the value, savings and efficiencies realised by our members.

Total value, savings and efficiencies for UK higher and further education 2015-16 - £295m
We are constantly working on adding value, savings and efficiencies for other services so the total figure is likely to increase over the year.
We only calculate value, savings and efficiencies for a service where it can be reliably evidenced and backed-up.
As well as this conservative estimate of £295m, our R&D work will bring the equivalent of at least £28m further value and savings each year for the next few years through the new services we are developing and testing with you at the moment.

Reducing our own costs
We've been making our own efficiency gains in recent years. We have achieved net annual savings of £8.9m in real terms over the past two years by operating more efficiently with further savings in the pipeline.
