This first edition of Performance Tracker provides a data-driven assessment of the Government’s performance in one crucial area – running public services. It focuses on five services: hospitals, adult social care, schools, prisons and the police.
The first independent analysis of its kind, Performance Tracker assesses performance in the light of the Government’s stated ambitions to maintain – and in some cases expand – the scope and quality of services, and to control spending.
The Institute for Government and the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) aim to help make government more effective. It is fundamental to its effectiveness that ministers, officials and the public know how well government is performing, and use this information to guide decisions.
