Good progress has been made in improving value for money by government departments on St Helena, according to a progress report from the island’s audit service.
Between 2008 and 2011 it made 78 recommendations on more efficient ways of working. Of these, 55 have been put into effect, 12 are being worked on, and five are no longer appropriate. Only in six cases has no action been taken.
Value-for-money reviews have included reports on vehicle management, medical supplies, empty government buildings, and the police service strategic plan.
