The Privy Council Office has no formal efficiency targets, but my Department constantly strives to make running cost savings and ensure value for money in delivery of its objectives.

The Privy Council Office has a small Departmental Expenditure Limit, of which 75 per cent. is devoted to salary and accommodation costs. This, combined with the lack of any spending programmes, reduces the flexibility to make savings.
