Welsh Finance Minister Jane Hutt has announced that £11m of Invest-to-Save funding is being made available to help the public sector meet the challenge of delivering more efficient and effective public services.
Jane Hutt said: “The Welsh Government has already invested £52m from the Invest-to-Save fund into over 50 improvement projects and today I have opened the fund to a new round of project proposals and will make a further £11m available for projects seeking funding in 2012-13.
“Invest-to-Save funding is helping public service organisations make the transition to more efficient and innovative forms of public service delivery. Recently I visited One Newport’s Information Station which is an excellent example of public service improvement. It is a result of organisations working together, sharing resources, equipment and office space and designing services around people in the local community rather than organisational structures.”
