Functional model for more efficient and effective government

This document provides a functional leadership model for more efficient and effective government.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government



The functional model of government provides strong central leadership of cross-departmental corporate functions. This model will professionalise the civil service through improved decision-making, cross-departmental working, organisational capability, efficiency, resilience and control. A strong functional model will help provide better public services and support savings.
