(Angela E. Smith)

The following performance targets have been set for Ordnance Survey in 2006-07:

Ordnance Survey will report externally against a set of Agency Performance Monitors (APMs) as required of all Executives Agencies in Government:

1. To achieve an operating profit before interest and dividends of £4.5 million for the financial year 1 April 2006 to 31 March 2007.

2. Some 99.6 per cent. of significant real world features are represented in the database within six months of completion.

3. To continuously improve the timeliness of the supply of our data to customers with a success rate not lower than 96 per cent.

4. To reduce carbon emissions from Ordnance Survey Headquarters by 28 per cent. against the base year of 2000-01.

5. To achieve an increase of at least 5 per cent. in business with customers transacted through our Ordnance Survey Options and Ordnance Survey Leisure map shop e-channels.

These targets reflect Ordnance Survey’s continuing commitment to customers, improved value for money for all of its stakeholders and commitment to Government policies.
