In July 2009, Surrey County Council announced the Public Value Review (PVR) programme to take a systematic and focused look at all our services and functions over a three-year period. The programme was designed to help keep us ahead of the game in planning for the financial challenges we knew were coming. Its objectives were to identify ways we could improve outcomes for Surrey residents and ensure the Council continued to deliver value for money.
The Cabinet formally closed the PVR programme on 27 November 2012. There were significant achievements realised through the programme including:
The PVR programme has changed the way the Council works. It has helped us to focus on the things that matter most to residents, played a key role in changing the organisation's culture and helped develop the skills of our staff and Members. If you would like to know more about the individual PVR's and how they worked, you can read about them in the PVR Closing Report below.
