Bury’s transformation strategy identifies some key programme commitments:
- We will start with the assumption, that can be tested, that the council will not directly deliver services.
- As each service is reviewed, new ways of delivering that service will be considered using the objective criteria set out in the Transformation Toolkit.
- Each review will consider a range of options for providing the service in the future. These include stopping the service, working with partners, self-management by community or voluntary groups, volunteering and commissioning to secure best value.
- All proposals for changing current delivery arrangements will have full engagement with agreed groups.
- All Transformation Implementation plans will identify savings to support the overall savings requirements.
- The current organisational structure of the council will be reviewed to ensure it best supports the range of services and functions in the future.
- New technology, including greater use of agile and home working, will be used to improve access to services and increase productivity.
- We will buy goods and services in a more co-ordinated way to get better value for money and reduce costs.
- We will look at all our land and buildings and assess how they fit into our future plans and if they provide value for money.
- New opportunities for working with partners and investing public money in different ways will be fully investigated and used to support the implementation of the Transformation Strategy.
