The challenges of CSR10 tops the agenda for every local government organisation. Representing a budget reduction of 28% over four years, the initiative has accelerated the implementation of new working practices, and brought efficiencies and cost savings into even sharper focus.
Timely access to accurate real time information is required in order to make effective decisions and plan for the future.
Already in progress when CSR10 was announced, the speed and scope of Shared Services will only increase in response. Merging local government operations and organisations demands new levels of flexibility and efficiency from underlying IT systems.
90% of government costs are personnel related making workforce reduction an inevitable consequence of budget cuts. Local government services will require new functionality and closer support from related IT systems and solutions in order to continue to deliver - and improve - service levels.
Financial management at all levels of local government is under pressure like never before. Making the right choices for cost reductions will involve greater clarity of current spend, insight into the knock-on effects of financial decisions, and the ability to accurately assess potential savings made through outsourcing.
