Welsh Finance Minister, Jane Hutt, has announced that £11 million of Invest-to-Save funding is being made available to help the public sector meet the challenge of delivering more efficient and effective public services
Jane Hutt said:
"The Welsh Government has already invested £52 million from the Invest-to-Save fund into over 50 improvement projects and today I have opened the fund to a new round of project proposals and will make a further £11million available for projects seeking funding in 2012-13.
"Invest-to-Save funding is helping public service organisations make the transition to more efficient and innovative forms of public service delivery. Recently I visited One Newport’s Information Station which is an excellent example of public service improvement. It is a result of organisations working together, sharing resources, equipment and office space and designing services around people in the local community rather than organisational structures."
Jane Hutt added:
"The latest funding will be aimed at collaborative projects between organisations, both within and between sectors to further the efficiency and innovation agenda, supporting innovative projects that transform service delivery.
"By joining-up services we can ensure that everyone has access to efficient, high-quality services while at the same time using the limited funding available in the most effective way."
