Government responds to SAVE ideas

Tue, 14 Nov 2017

The Government has responded to over 1300 money-saving ideas submitted by members of the public.

It's hoped the Securing Added Value and Efficiency scheme - or SAVE - will help the Manx Government identify up to £25m of savings.

After receiving responses from over 700 people earlier this year, the Treasury has now published responses to each idea, and has already implemented some of the suggestions.

It's hoped moving pay slips online alone will result in over £15,000 of savings annually.

Other suggestions which will be looked at further include allowing Government employees to work a shorter week for a smaller salary, making heating at Castle Rushen High School adjustable and restricting overtime for those returning from illness to prevent further sick days.

The full list of ideas and responses can be downloaded from the Government's website.
