Efficient definition

Efficient means, in respect to costs and operating expenditure, costs incurred by a prudent service provider managing the Network, acting efficiently, having regard to any matters particular to the environment in which management of the Network occurs including:
Efficient means the accomplishment of, or ability to accomplish, a job with a minimum expenditure of time and effort; i.e. the ability to perform or function in the best possible manner with the least waste of time and effort by having and using the requisite knowledge and skills. Efficiency is determined in relation to cost – it means “doing the thing right’, thus providing water in the most cost effective manner so that the benefits of the provision of water outweigh the social, economic and environmental costs of providing water.
Efficient means that the cumulative result of regulated prices drives investment by the utility and the consumer that is best for the state as a whole, however “best” is defined (overall cost, or cost plus other factors)

Efficient becomes the elite sport system (Xx Xxxxxxxx et al., 2015, p. 360) and this is manifested in the performance of its athletes. Both “horizontal co- ordination at the national level” (Xx Xxxxxxxx et al., 2015, p. 139) and “vertical co-ordination between the national policy level and regions” (Xx Xxxxxxxx et al., 2015, p. 142) are critical success factors of national elite sport policies. A lack of national-regional coordination may result in inconsistent and ineffective delivery of elite sport policy. For example, Australia’s relatively poor medal performance at the 2008 Summer Olympics was at least partially attributed to inadequate vertical coordination (Independent Sport Panel of Australian Government, 2009, p. 60). Vertical co-ordination is also an issue for other nations (e.g., France, Canada and Japan) (Xx Xxxxxxxx et al., 2015; Green & Xxxxxxxx, 2005; Yamamoto, 2008). This vertical co-ordination, in many nations, includes the interorganisational relation and interaction between different levels of government organisations. There remains a dearth of empirical research specifically focusing on the interorganisational dynamics within a nation’s elite sport system affecting a nation’s elite sport success. The research on the interplay between national sport organisations and regional level (i.e., vertical relation) is extremely sparse. This gap may limit the understanding of the policy factors affecting elite sport development and success in the elite sport management literature. This study investigates interorganisational relationships (IORs) with certain vertical features, including possible interorganisational conflict, between national sport organisations and their provincial counterparts. Specifically, the study is contextualised within the national- provincial organisations for three sports/disciplines in a major yet largely distinctive elite sport nation, namely China – artistic gymnastics, swimming, and cycling. Beneath the “simplified” (Tan & Green, 2008, p. 318) veneer of China’s national elite sport organisational structure, there are many provincial sport organisations. Provincial sports organisations play a crucial role in contributing to China’s elite sport achievements (GAS, 2008), but there is limited research exploring how the national and provincial sports organisations interact and the impact of this national-provincial IOR on China’s elite sport development. The four research questions investigated in this paper are:
Efficient means “achieving maximum productivity with minimum wasted effort or expense” (OED 2016). In the context of conservation monitoring this means getting the most information out of a system from a given budget, which requires that a combination of funds, time, energy and human capacity resources are spent carefully (Gray & Kalpers 2005). This is particularly important because funds for environmental management and conservation activities are limited and far exceeded by conservation needs (James et al. 1999; Balmford et al. 2003). Gray and Kalpers (2005) describe an efficient ranger-based monitoring programme in the Virunga-Bwindi region of East-Central Africa, where the data are collected in a systematic way for a low cost, and the information can be easily fed into analysis systems and processed in a timely manner to directly feed into management.
