As part of its investment in modern technology to deliver a more efficient and cost-effective service to the public, the Valuation Office Agency has recently introduced its banding support tool to support current council tax list maintenance. This has been delivered on time (delivery date 27 March 2008) and within budget (at £995,000). Simply stated, it assists decision making by VOA staff in relation to new or altered bandings by automatically identifying the most relevant comparable properties. This aids speed and consistency.
