Single portal for public sector debt collection

Autumn Statement

3 December 2014

Mike Turley, head of public sector at Deloitte, the business advisory firm, comments:

“The Government is providing a single portal for the public sector to access debt collection and enforcement services through a Debt Market Integrator. That reflects the US Department of the Treasury’s Bureau of the Fiscal Service that works with federal government as well as states on debt management and collection. Comparable performance improvements in the UK could save the taxpayer an additional £12 billion per year.

“The Cabinet Office’s target of increasing digital engagement with the public services by 10 percentage points by 2016 is bold but attainable. Deloitte research suggests that 88 per cent of those online want to do more of their interaction with government digitally. Many of the public sector’s processes were developed in the industrial age and it has more to gain than any other sector by moving into the digital age.”
