Our work is focused on improving the efficiency, quality and accountability of public services in Scotland through sharing knowledge and supporting improvement solutions. Our approach is to build on the expertise within local authorities and work in partnership with stakeholders in the public, private and voluntary sectors. Going forward one of our key aims is to support councils and their partners through acute pressures on their finances and resources across the next period. The challenge of change is to maintain and, if possible, improve outcomes on a lower cost base.
To this end our planning is focused around four core programmes – Supporting Transformation Performance and Improvement, CEO and Corporate Support, Research and Intelligence and Supporting Digital.
(Established in 2005, we are a partnership with COSLA and SOLACE.)
