Twelve principles guide the Transformation Reviews 

The transformation component is the largest and most complex area of the programme. These principles help to guide scoping, reviewing and options appraisals:

  1. Everything is included when scoping in order to maximise benefits
  2. Increase income opportunities
  3. It must cost less
  4. Different models of delivery must be explored - research from other Councils, other sectors and internationally
  5. Provide a clear evidence base for any recommendations informed by data
  6. Involve, engage and where appropriate co-produce changes with residents and businesses
  7. Options should support those at risk
  8. Stop 'red tape'
  9. Aim for full cost recovery but not through internal re-charging
  10. Demonstrate cross Council improvements in efficiency
  11. Ensure everyone has a role to play in changes and takes personal responsibility
  12. Deliver sustainable outcomes in the longer term in line with the Future Generations Framework.

The programme has three key objectives:

To transform services in ways which will deliver both financial sustainability and good outcomes for residents and businesses in Swansea. In doing this we will engage or co-produce alongside staff and communities and increase our efficiency.
