  • “ Place-shaping: a shared ambition for the future of local government ” Next Steps N3PD 6 th June 2007 Sir Michael Lyons
  • Lyons- the headlines
    • The type of country we want to live in
    • Communities to choose more for themselves (satisfaction)
    • Need to argue the value of difference
    • Need for a grown-up debate about what we want and what we are willing to pay for
    • A single system of Government not a spat
    • Confused accountability undermines trust
    • A New Constitutional settlement
  • Local Government - Role
    • Placeshaping - a wider role
    • (Leadership ,convening and coalition)
    • Flexibility and the scope to respond
    • Scope to “grow the cake”
    • Helping to manage the pressures
  • Local Government -Funding
    • No “golden key”
    • A “mosaic” of changes
    • Flexibility much more important than the balance of funding
    • Need incentives for growth and efficiency
    • Council tax not broken but urgent need to address fairness and value
  • Short-term recommendations to central government
    • Increase local flexibility / leave more scope for local choice
    • less specific grants and ‘soft controls’ (yes: CSR)
    • supplementary business rate (yes, consult)
    • power to charge for domestic waste to manage pressures (consider)
    • Address fairness concerns by reform of CTB
    • Recognise as a ‘rebate’; automate take-up (consider)
    • Raise savings limits for pensioners to 50K (consider)
    • Improve incentives in the funding system
    • Improve incentives in the funding system ( LABGI yes )
    • Improve transparency of the funding system
    • Introduce independent voice to help scrutinise funding decisions and promises (rules out ‘grants commission; awaiting response )
    • End capping (No)
  • Medium and long-term recommendations to CG
    • Council Tax
    • Revalue council tax to improve fairness (not this parliament)
    • Extra bands to help those in low value properties, paid for by those at the top (not this parliament)
    • Other Funding
    • Consider assigning a fixed proportion of income tax to local government, (consider)
    • Consider power to levy tourist tax if case based on local public support. (No)
    • Local Income Tax – feasible, could improve fairness, would take time to implement and has significant costs
    • Relocalise business rates – to provide local flexibility and better incentives
    • Both – need greater public support and understanding than currently exists Government will continue to keep under review
  • Recommendations to local government
    • Local government needs to raise its game to make the most of current opportunities:
    • Provide strong local leadership and long term vision
    • Lead as ‘convenor’ across local public services
    • Engage with public to inform decisions, manage pressures and expectations
    • Be recognised as champions of efficiency
    • Reduce dependence on central government for guidance and support
    • Ensure effective national voice through the Local Government Association
    • Political parties need to improve councillor recruitment and support
  • Taking Stock
    • 3 Reports (Dec 05, May 06,March 07) together provide argument and evidence for change
    • Key recommendations enshrined in the White Paper.Just the beginning.
    • Budget report accepts case for financial flexibility and agrees further consideration of most proposals.
    • Need to make the case to this Government and those who want to be its successor
    • Need to win popular support by engagement and by demonstrating impact and value
  • How can you contribute?
    • Perceived value for money remains a key indicator
    • Room for a new relationship with business community
    • Offering real local choice
    • Looking beyond the boundaries
    • Looking beyond the budget
  • Vision for the future
    • Strong, confident local government with a good range of powers to tailor its place-shaping behaviours to improve well-being and prosperity in every community
    • Greater public understanding of local spending decisions: who is responsible for them and how they are made; based on greater engagement to inform difficult decisions and manage pressures
    • Distinctive communities, proud and confident about their different choices
    • As a result, greater public trust and satisfaction with the system of government as a whole

  • The Politics of Procurement Why procurement matters? What is happening? Legacy and solutions Conflicts of objectives Assessing performance
  • Why procurement matters?
    • £140bn of public sector purchases per annum (10% of GDP)
    • Potential for government savings: aim for £5.5bn pa of Gershon £20bn pa savings
    • Public sector procurement crucial for some sectors (defence; pharmaceuticals; construction; health and care services; transport infrastructure; IT; consulting)
    • Link to global and EU markets and rules
  • The legacy problem
    • (1999 Gershon Review)
    • Fragmentation of procurement: circa 200 councils; numerous government agencies and quangos
    • No common framework; lack of consistency; lack of common records
    • No common process for large, complex, projects (IT disasters)
    • Lack of procurement skills and training
    • Procurement staff bi-passed
    • Poor value for money, especially professional services (management consultants; financial; legal)
  • Better procurement What is happening?
    • Leading role for OGC and PSA of NHS (and now GPS)
    • Demand aggregation
    • Better processes
    • E-government
    • Procurement IT
    • Collaborative bulk contracts
    • From spot purchase to large supplies
    • Government buying agency
    • Regional consortia
    • Collaboration across departments
    • Framework contracts
    • Gateway for big projects
    • Procurement card for small purchases
    • 63 e-auctions: 20% saving on £1bn
    • e-tenders (£2bn)
    - Prince 2; ITIL - British Telecom - IS-TC in the NHS
  • Procurement: The conflicts
    • Centralisation/aggregation .v. Localisation/decentralisation
    • Value for money .v. Other objectives (protectionism, as in defence; sustainability; social inclusion, as in London)
    • Business confidentiality .v. Accountability and transparency (Gateways)
    • Fair and open competition .v. Speedy, simple, processes (Dr. Foster .v. DoH)
    • Access to small business & voluntary sector .v. Economies of scale
    • Short term savings .v. Long term relationships
  • Efficiency- honest and transparent?
    • Reported Efficiency Savings £13.3bn
    • NAO
    • £3.5 billion fair (25%)
    • £6.7 billion uncertain (50%)
    • £3.1 billion unclear (25%)
    • Cost of achieving efficiency savings £bn?
