The economic downturn could have a “significant” effect on the quality of
public services as tax revenues fall and demand for social benefits rises,
Deloitte has warned.
In its Turning the Tide report, the Big Four firm said central and
local government would come under intense pressure to cut costs but urged
managers to seize the chance to deliver reforms that could not be made in an
easier economic climate, such as sharing back-office functions with other public
bodies, clamping down on sick leave and selling assets.
‘Government organisations should make an immediate financial assessment of
their own businesses and their partners, the sustainability of existing risk
management processes, and likely changes to revenue streams as customer
behaviour changes,’ Deloitte said.
