Case study: Derby City Council

  • Comment

Derby City Council commissioned PricewaterhouseCoopers to work through a diagnostic review of all the council’s processes as part of the Decats project.

The diagnostic stage identified opportunities for standardising front-office, back-office and strategic-core working.

Fourteen processes were identified as having scope for simplification, including procurement, financial management, human resources and ICT workforce deployment.

A reduction of 465 posts by 2012-13 was identified.

However, due to ICT redundancy and prudential borrowing costs, Derby will have a net expenditure of £5.2m by 2010-11 - the point at which local government as a whole is expected to have delivered at least £1.8bn of savings from back-office functions.

By 2012-13, the point at which councils are to have made a further £1.8bn in back office savings, Derby’s net saving will be £5.6m.
