Merseyside Police is engaged in a significant change programme, as part of its response to the Government’s austerity programme.

To deliver the savings required to balance the budget, the PCC has established a Governance Framework for Business Change & Efficiency.

By maximising frontline resources this helps to ensure the delivery of an effective and efficient police service that can continue to provide an excellent policing service to our communities and deliver the priorities outlined in the Police and Crime Plan.

The Business Change & Efficiency framework sets out the governance arrangements to deliver fundamental business change in order to deliver the savings and efficiencies required. This framework enables the PCC to oversee the Merseyside Police change programmes and consider and approve the final business cases; thus providing the PCC with the opportunity to hold the Chief Constable to account and to challenge the proposals submitted to ensure that all options have been appropriately considered, costed and risk assessed, as well as ensure that the change governance framework have been adhered to.

The framework also enables the PCC to hear representations from the Trade Unions and Police Federation on the proposals and the process undertaken to produce the business case.
