The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister has produced a series of Voluntary Toolkits for service sectors and crosscutting workstreams. They are intended to help identify areas where local authorities might be able to make efficiency gains and they describe how they could be measured. The toolkits cover the areas of: procurement, process transactions, corporate services, supporting people, social housing and productive time. Calculators are also available for low value efficiency and absence cost.The toolkits are available at: http://www.rcoe.gov.uk/rce/core/page.do?pageId=10106
