Lifetime Costs Comparison Kincorth & Torry Academies v New Provision

The Local Government in Scotland Act 2003, section 1 sets out a duty where a local authority is expected to demonstrate in fulfilment of a series of obligations placed upon it. One such is the duty to secure best value by continuous improvement in performance of the authority's functions, while maintaining an appropriate balance between quality and cost and having regard to economy, efficiency, effectiveness, equal opportunities and the achievement of sustainable development.
