Doing Battle With The Deficit

Immediately following the formation of a new coalition government, in conjunction with Durham University, Wax Digital conducted extensive research into the attitudes of UK public sector procurement and finance professionals towards deficit repair.

In an effort to understand what the attitudes across public sector procurement were towards the change in government and its inevitable scrutiny on public spending, we decided to gain an in-depth viewpoint through roundtable discussions, interviews and analysis to create this exclusive report.

Key Statistics:

  • 50% are positive about the new government
  • 75% believe deficit situation will improve over the next 5 years
  • 64% believe the government should be focused on finding more efficiency in public spending
