Action 5: Drive efficiency and effectiveness
All public organisations in Ireland are obliged to treat public funds with care, and to ensure that the best possible value for money is obtained whenever public money is being spent or invested. As part of this broader approach to ensuring value for money, the introduction of shared services and centralised procurement in earlier phases of reform will be further integrated in public service operations and expanded into new areas. The National Shared Services Office (NSSO) and the Office of Government Procurement (OGP) will continue to create a more efficient and effective public service.
See fully expanded description of this action on P.19 of Our Public Service 2020.
While this action was not selected as a specific action for 2018/2019, the core values are being progressed as part of other actions in Our Public Service 2020, including:
- Action 1: Accelerate digital delivery of services
- Action 2: Improve services for our customers
