Departmental Standards

Volume 491: debated on Monday 20 April 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills what estimate he has made of the cost to his Department of measuring compliance with its targets under its public service agreements in the last 12 months for which figures are available. (266710)

The Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills (DIUS) does not maintain information specifically identifying the separate costs of measuring compliance with its targets under its Public Service Agreements (PSAs). With the cost of generating this information being disproportionate, any costs of measuring compliance with the Department’s targets under its PSAs, beyond those incurred in the normal course of managing its business and performance, are likely to be small.
