Oxfam Novib Laos



We have performed an extended Level of Effort (LoE) analysis to quantify the investment in term of human resources vs. grants and partners contracted by Oxfam Novib in Laos. The analysis was then coupled with a cost analysis of ONL’s expenditure to have a final valuation in regards to internal activities of the office (from back-office tasks to all partners- and donors-related activities), and the internal resources Oxfam spent on managing its grants and partners. We finally built a cost and investment model based on our survey findings to simulate the potential impact of future internal investments, as well as to model the necessary means Oxfam would need to engage to manage an expanding portfolio of activities.
