London Connects, the e-government group for the capital, has agreed to work in partnership with two other local organisations to make greater efficiency gains.
London Connects will soon start work on an efficiency strategy with Capital Ambition, the improvement partnership for public sector authorities in London, and the London Centre of Excellence, a regional lead organisation for local government efficiency.
The co-operative strategy is driven by the National Improvement and Efficiency Strategy, produced for councils by the Department of Communities and Local Government.
This strategy advocates that improvement bodies and centres for excellence should work in regional partnerships as a way of achieving combined service improvements and efficiency gains.
London Connects attracts mainly public sector technologists, while Capital Ambition has wider support among chief executives and members of local councils.
