You have to love the way figures get shifted around sometimes. The Office of Government Commerce (OCG) for example "saves" everyone money apparently by reducing administration costs. If you look at this 2005/06 report you will see on page 13 how they saved £84 million in administration costs by introducing the Government Procurement card.
Yet, when asked in Parliament about the level of reduction to the administration costs of OCG, the Treasury minister Angela Eagle said that in 2004/05 the net cost of adminstration to OCG was £34,896,000 and the following year it was £44,271,000, that's an increase of £9,375,00.
In fact, since 2003/04 the adniminstration costs at OCG have been rising every year, and apparently the reason it leapt up so much in the same year that it said it had saved £84 million was because it was "improving efficiency across the public sector.".
Seriously, I kid you not. They said that they saved £84 million in administration costs in a year when it actually increased by almost £10 million to just over half the amount that they said they had saved and it was all because of an efficiency drive.
