SFT Positive Impacts

When we were established in 2008, Scottish Ministers set us a challenging target of achieving between £100 - £150m of savings and benefits each year during our first, five-year Corporate Plan period. 

And we succeeded, as between 2009 and 2014, we secured £642m of savings and benefits.

During this 2014 – 2019 Corporate Plan period, we’re working to secure a similar amount and are on track to do so with £135m delivered in 2014/15, £146m in 2015/16 and £138m in 2016/17.

Over and above our financial target, the impact of our work generates many benefits that make a difference to peoples' lives, as:

  • It secures future employment;
  • It creates new training and apprenticeship opportunities;
  • It helps protect the environment;
  • It expands access to superfast broadband; and
  • It improves working environments by having flexible, well-designed buildings.
