The event launched the second edition of Performance Tracker, a data-driven analysis of the performance of key public services from the Institute for Government and the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy.

A unique independent analysis, Performance Tracker uses more than 100 data series to shed light on the heated but opaque debate about whether our public services can make further efficiencies, or if they really are at breaking point. This edition examined nine public services iincluding those dominating the pre-Budget headlines: prisons, hospitals, schools, police and UK Visas and Immigration.

Based on this analysis, the report looked at key decisions facing the Chancellor in the upcoming budget.

Dr Emily Andrews, Senior Researcher at the Institute for Government, presented the key findings of the report. This was followed by responses from Nicky Morgan MP, Chair of the Treasury Select Committee and Gillian Fawcett, Head of the Governments Faculty at CIPFA.  

This event was chaired by Julian McCrae, Deputy Director of the Institute for Government.
