We will ensure every significant financial commitment is founded on a robust business case with clear and fully identified cost and quality benefits. Innovation will play a key role in our efforts to reduce the cost of issuing a Disclosure and we will be inventive in our approach to migrating the flow of information throughout the process to more efficient, lower-cost channels.
What all things matter the most in the working of building and pest inspection?
However, there has been a significant growth in the overall number of volunteer Disclosures issued by the CRB. This represents a significant and growing risk to our aim of achieving full cost recovery from financial year 2005/06. The CRB will therefore need to discuss with Central Government departments how higher levels of volunteers are to be funded in the future. The Portability service – the ‘re-using’ of a Disclosure for a job/licence for which it was not originally issued – was re-launched at the start of December 2003.
The intention behind the provision of this service is to reduce cost and bureaucracy for customers. We will consider the continuation of the service whilst looking at the feasibility of introducing a notification scheme. To ensure the CRB continues to represent value for money we will initiate a variety of projects to realise improvements and Inspection Proccess to the operation and generate productivity gains throughout the supply chain. Our forecast growth in the volume of Disclosures provides the opportunity to reap real cost benefits from operational improvements. By maintaining a stable cost base while volumes increase we will also be able to generate a significant reduction in the unit cost of production.
The foundation of these improvements will come from introducing a performance management system for our staff. Work Management will allow our operational managers to generate an increased emphasis on output and productivity which will be used to measure the success of our productivity improvement projects. This aim refers to developing the capacity of the organisation to handle increased demand and also how we will generate that uplift in demand.
