Local Government Performance Measurement Framework for 2008/09
The Local Government Performance Measurement Framework, introduced in 2004, contains National Strategic and Core set performance indicators.
Service specific reference groups keep all the performance indicators in the framework under review. Each reference group comprises of expert representatives from local authorities and Assembly Government policy directorates and other partner organisations such as the Wales Audit Office and the Welsh Local Government Association.
Following public consultation in late 2007 and subsequent review by the reference groups, I have agreed the publication of the Local Government Performance Measurement Framework for 2008-09. It covers the following areas where local authorities provide services: Corporate Services; Social Services; Education; Housing; Environment and Transport; Planning and Regulatory Services; Leisure and culture; and Housing Benefit. Local authorities are expected to collect the data against these indicators from April 2008.
This year there are some changes to the statutory performance indicators (listed at annex A). The former set of 22 statutory performance indicators has been in place since 2005. For the most part the changes this year are largely technical changes to reflect current professional practice or wider changes to the law. The exceptions to this are the proposals for the performance indicators that relate to housing benefit and council tax benefits. As these are non-devolved services the proposals reflect the changes being proposed for the performance indicators that will be set for English and Scottish local authorities from April 2008. A further non-technical change is the addition of a statutory performance indicator on pupil attendance at primary school to mirror the existing statutory indicator on pupil attendance at secondary school.
I have signed the Local Government (Best Value Performance Indicators) (Wales) Order 2008, which contains the changes to the Statutory Indicators.
The Local Government (Best Value Performance Indicators) (Wales) Order 2008, laid on 27 February, comes into force on 01 April 2008. The full Local Government Performance Measurement Framework for 2008-09 was published on the 29th February and is available on the Local Government Data Unit’s web site.
