In 2015, the Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) identified a need to improve unit costing. In the light of continuing budget cuts and in a drive to improve transparency, the Commission wanted to allocate all costs to individual projects. Simultaneously, it was decided the Commission would move to a cloud-based infrastructure. With an office relocation imminent, it was also time to move away from their outsourced back office arrangements and implement their own accounting system. The project team implemented cloud-based accounting software Aqilla, allowing the LGBCE to take on full responsibility for its financial information.
