I am the Minister responsible for overseeing the delivery of value for money in the Cabinet Office.

The Public Services Unit was established in the Cabinet Office on 1 April 2009 to support the continued development of the Government’s strategy for reforming public services and embed it through workforce and service innovation. The Unit covers four main policy areas: strategic analysis; workforce reform; innovation; and service transformation. The Unit works closely with HM Treasury, the Prime Minister’s Delivery Unit and other parts of Cabinet Office, such as the Office of the Third Sector.
