Shared Services in Ireland

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)

    Abstract

    The global financial crisis has forced governments across the globe to seek new ways of achieving efficiencies and savings in running their state administrations. Prominent amongst the variety of approaches adopted is the concept of shared services, which purports to offer a means of consolidating common tasks, reducing duplication, and achieving greater value for money. Based on successful experiences in the private sector, the phenomenon of shared service centres (SSCs) as a new co-ordination practice is of particular interest. In this chapter, the use of shared services and SSCs in Ireland is considered.
