The Executive has established arrangements to monitor progress against efficiency targets and is addressing risks with the definition of gains

5. The Executive has established an Efficient Government Delivery Division (EGDD) to monitor progress against efficiency targets. Regular progress reports on efficiency gains made are provided to the Executive’s Management Group Efficiency Sub-Group and the Efficient Government Steering Group. The EGDD is now part of a larger Public Service Reform and Efficiency Group so as to better integrate the Efficient Government Initiative with other areas of public sector reform.
6. In March and September 2005, and again in March 2006, EGDD published over 70 Efficiency Technical Notes (ETNs) setting out how individual projects were expected to deliver specific efficiency gains and how progress against savings plans was to be measured, monitored and reported. During 2005, Audit Scotland identified a number of risks in the methodologies, measurement and eligibility of savings projects. Since then, there has been some improvement in the content of ETNs, although the adviser to the Scottish Parliament’s Finance Committee commented in June 2006 that risks remained which make it difficult to validate reported efficiency gains.
