No option is off the table

June 3, 2009

Local governments are considering the best operating model for post CSR10. Councils have already tried a technology-led approach which involves re-platforming the disparate systems and from that, undertaking business process reengineering to deliver efficiencies in operational departments enabled by the new systems.

A second iteration on this theme is to outsource back office functions to deliver savings in finance and accounting, human resources, procurement etc. However, with the likelihood of cuts of up to 30% in central government grant aid from 2011, this shaving the parmesan approach is untenable.

I’ve been working on a possible solution, but I need input. What are the solutions; the more radical the better? Start the debate.
