Productivity and Efficiency Plan

The National Framework sets a requirement that Fire and Rescue Authorities (FRAs) produce and publish annual efficiency plans. There is a specific ask from the Minister of State for Crime, Policing and Fire that in 2023/24, FRAs produce plans that not only cover planned efficiencies, but also their plans for increasing productivity.

This plan addresses this requirement.

In addition to this, and as part of the 2021/22 Spending Review, the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC) and the Local Government Association (LGA) proposed that across Fire and Rescue Services (FRSs) in England, the fire and rescue sector could create 2% of non-pay efficiencies and to also increase productivity by 3% by 2024/25.

Therefore this plan will help the NFCC, LGA and Home Office to collate evidence and to assess likely progress at national level against the agreed Spending Review Goals.
