Corporate Solutions

Eight years into austerity the public sector has made big strides in reforming itself to deliver improved value for money and avoid the pain of cuts to frontline services. Yet huge variance remains in the capacity of organisations to manage their finances, expertly engage suppliers and effectively allocate resources utilising relevant corporate solutions.

  • In 2015/16, councils received £9.9bn in Revenue Support Grant (RSG). By 2019/20, this will have dropped to £2.2bn
  • Local councils will suffer a 54% cut in their funding from central government over the next two financial years, according to a recent LGA report
  • Of 126 councils questioned, 89% said service quality was maintained in their area last year despite years of cuts
