Statement in response to publication of Single Departmental Plans

Responding to the publication of the Government's Single Departmental Plans, Gavin Freeguard, Associate Director and Head of Data and Transparency at the Institute for Government, said: 

"Today’s Single Departmental Plans are a huge improvement on their predecessors. They offer a much better sense of prioritisation and consistent planning across government."

"There is still some way to go – the plans should link spending to priorities and give a sense of whether the Government has enough people with the right skills and experience to deliver."
