Steps have been taken to integrate the Efficient Government Initiative with other areas of public sector reform but challenges still exist
1.17 Previously the EGDD operated largely independently of other policy groups within the Executive. In August 2006, the Scottish Executive Finance and Central Services Department was reorganised and the EGDD is now part of a larger Public Service Reform and Efficiency Group with responsibility for the development of Best Value, performance improvement and community planning as well as the Efficient Government Initiative. These changes are expected to lead to better integration of the initiative with other strands of the public sector reform agenda.
1.18 Notwithstanding these changes, delivery of the Efficient Government Initiative remains challenging. The EGDD has had a high turnover of staff since its inception. Its remit has also expanded to include the development of eGovernment and the promotion of initiatives designed to enhance the public’s awareness of IT and access to the Internet. Unless EGDD’s resource and skills base is maintained, there is a risk that it will be unable to champion the drive for further efficiency improvements across the public sector.
