The State of the State 2013 – a new report from Deloitte and Reform – brings together data, analysis and exclusive research to provide a snapshot of the UK Government and public sector. The result is an original, thought-provoking and constructive report than can be used as the basis for objective debate on the UK state.
This year's report features analysis of the public finances and explores the demands placed on public spending over the past 50 years and into the next 50 to come. It considers government 'through a business lens' to look at corporate approaches to public sector reform. And it showcases the views and priorities of the leaders of the UK’s local public services. The State of the State is the UK's leading independent guide to government and the public sector.
