- National Audit Office (NAO)
- TSO (The Stationery Office)
'The Efficiency and Reform Group's Role in Improving Public Sector Value For Money (HC 887)' is the National Audit Office's (NAO) report on the Efficiency and Reform Group's progress since it's establishment in May 2010 within the Cabinet Office.
The Group brings many of the functions of a typical corporate headquarters together in one place in the centre of government. Its priorities are improving efficiency in central government, and wider reform of the way public services are provided, in order to make the spending reductions required by the 2010 Spending Review.
The Group is responsible for various new initiatives which are designed to increase efficiency, make savings and improve value for money.
renegotiating contracts with major suppliers;
implementation of a centralised procurement process;
a review of major government projects; and
a new Property Unit.
The NAO's review details various challenges that the Group faces; however, it is too soon for the NAO to reach a judgment on its success in improving the value for money of government overall.
The review is intended to provide an objective baseline against which progress made by the Group can be assessed by the NAO and the Public Accounts Committee.
