Delivering more value with limited budgets

Increasing efficiency with predictable costs.

Governments are under pressure to reduce costs in the face of competing policy demands and restrained economic conditions. In response, many governments face lower budget allocations and must deliver efficiency dividends.

New approaches such as cloud computing - outsourcing ICT to large, shared facilities - can provide an effective way to reduce equipment, maintenance, and energy costs, and boost the reliability and security of systems. Further savings can be made by combining cloud computing with enhanced procurement arrangements, such as implementing standardised contracts for hardware and software, and using the public sector's bargaining power to secure discounts.

Managed services can also be considered to reduce the requirement for full-time staff while achieving a fixed cost model that can also scale on-demand. By only paying for the services they need on-demand, governments can reduce their ICT capital expenditure and move the ongoing costs to operational expenditure.
