Reform and Deloitte are delighted to announce the publication of The State of the State, a major report into the nature of the public sector and the progress of public service reform under the Coalition Government. The report presents policy makers and commentators with all the key data, analysis and conclusions to ensure an objective debate into the operation of government and public service reform in Britain.
The State of the State provides a quantitative and qualitative assessment of the Government’s fiscal position, its assets and capability to implement a comprehensive programme of public service reform. It analyses the implementation of major reforms across policy areas and provides the facts of what is happening in Government and the public sector. The State of the State is an independent and definitive guide to the current direction of policy under the Coalition Government and the potential for sustainable reform of the public services.
