This work will be undertaken from within existing budgets at the Cabinet Office. The Government will engage as the sector draws up plans to help take advantage of the opportunities the new digital age presents – protecting frontline services whilst delivering efficiencies. If the sector is able to deliver these proposals, they could contribute towards our goal, as announced at Autumn Statement 14, of a further £10bn efficiency savings.
