Abstract :
Earlier this year following Government's introduction of the welcomed 6-year funding settlement for Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management (FCERM) work, funding will increase from £370m this year to over £400m in 2020/21.The increased funding and the opportunities it provides come with a price. The cost of this is that we need to demonstrate efficiency improvements of 10% in delivering this programme.Although it is part of our routine day to day work to provide efficient, best value outputs this applies across the board to not only the Environment Agency (EA) but all other Risk Management Authorities (RMA) delivering FCERM schemes in the 6 year period up to 2020/21. In order to demonstrate that we are achieving these targets we will have to measure and record them which is something that many in the industry have not previously done. In parallel with this we will also need to demonstrate that we are continuously improving efficiency and value for money.This workshop will bring together all stakeholders to share and discuss the issues, policy and exchange their knowledge as how we can best achieve this.
