The legal services team at Nottinghamshire County Council has been shortlisted for a local government ‘Oscar’ for the innovative way it has used new technology to improve efficiency and save money.

The team has carried out extensive work in switching from paper to electronic, digital and online solutions for the way it manages and files documents. Now it has been nominated for a gong at the prestigious Local Government Chronicle 2015 awards ceremony, to be held on Wednesday 11th March.

The work has reduced the council’s expenditure on legal services by 46%, which has helped the team bring back in-house its child protection service.
