Proposals - deliver an effective organisation

Priorities and proposals

The council spends about 9% of the budget on this area.

Our priorities are to

  • improve the service we provide to customers.

The approved savings for 2016-2020 include

  • reducing consultant expenditure 
  • increasing savings through procurement, including improved contract management
  • increasing some charges by more than the rate of inflation
  • improving joint working across back-office functions, making better use of technology to improve service and reduce duplication.
