Local government - an opportunity for FM

19 May 2011

Local authorities will move towards greater levels of outsourcing and bundling of services in order to meet efficiency savings, says AMA report

The Facilities Management Outsourcing – Central and Local Government Markets - UK 2011-2015 report from AMA Research focuses on the provision of multi-service or integrated contracts within the Central and Local Government sectors which amount to over £4bn in total, growning just 1 percent in 2010. The report says budget cuts will see local authorities in particular move towards greater levels of outsourcing and bundling of services in order to meet efficiency savings.
The local government sector is widely thought to be the sector with the greatest potential. With relatively low penetration of facilities services outsourcing and large budget cuts to be made without reducing front line services, it is thought likely that outsourcing will increase and more efficient bundling could gain ground from single service contracts.
AMA Research’s report 'Facilities Management Outsourcing - Central and Local Government Markets – UK 2011-2015' is available in hard copy or electronic format for £795 and can be ordered online at http://www.amaresearch.co.uk  or by calling 01242 235724.
