PBR tipped to have far reaching measures

PwC forecasts the PBR on November 24 will have far-reaching transformation programmes

Authorities are considering far-reaching transformation programmes, aimed at
developping new thinking on commissioning, new service delivery models and much
greater collaboration with the private and third sectors,
PricewaterhouseCoopers
LLP
(PwC) predicts.

In his forecast before the release of Darling’s pre-budget report on November
24, Steve Beet, PwC partner and head of local government practice, said the
report would be awaited with a degree of trepidation by many local government
leaders and chief executives.

‘The certainty that was to be provided by the three year spending agreement
in 2007 is eroding as rumours abound that it may be re-opened,’ he said.

‘Statements of intent around increased public spending to address the impact
of global financial crises are encouraging, but as funds are likely to be
directed towards major capital projects, we can expect more focus on day-to-day
core service delivery efficiency.’
