Surrey County Council required an external support to accelerate Future Transformation initiatives and approaches that focus on sustainable efficiencies that can simultaneously improve outcomes. The transformation work is an urgent requirement to assist with the Medium-Term Financial Plan and efficiencies to support the organisations budget gap. This requirement evolved out of the need for pipeline opportunities in both transformation and the twin track programme to support with mitigating demand and inflationary pressures within the department.
