UK : Two authorities to merge administrative functions in cost savings measure
Leicestershire County Council and Nottingham City Council have decided to share administrative functions such as HR, payroll and finance services in a move expected to save more than £2 million per year.
The agreement has also been designed in such a way as to allow other authorities to join the partnership should they decide to and has been welcomed by the government as a way of ‘making the most of every pound they have.’
