The LGA has re-launched the national shared services map for 2018 which evidences how shared services have contributed to taxpayers saving more than £971m cumulative efficiency savings from over 559 shared service arrangements, reinforcing councils’ reputation as the most efficient part of the public sector.
The map contains information that has been provided directly by councils to the LGA and we have not sought to audit the figures supplied.
How to use the map
There are four easy ways to use the map to assist in the development of your shared service
- Categories; you can filter the shared service category you are interested in by clicking on the service delivery icons below the map. Click 'all' to reset the categories.
- Locality; the map is designed to allow you to easily identify shared service projects in your locality.
- Contacts; making contact with project leads prior to setting up your project can save time and help you avoid expensive mistakes. Select the relevant arrangement, click on the icon and scroll down to see the project lead’s contact name and email.
- Data table; the underpinning data table for the map allows you to look at the in-depth detail of the arrangement and the efficiency savings. It also shows regional summaries of service delivery categories, partnerships and savings.
