FCO Services

Volume 660: debated on Thursday 23 May 2019

FCO Services operates as a trading fund of the FCO. I have set it the following performance targets for 2019-20:

1. Achievement of a return on capital employed of at least 3.5% (statutory commitment)

2. A productivity ratio of at least 80%, measuring actual billable hours v. available billable hours

3. In-year customer satisfaction results averaging at least 80%

4. A Your Say score for “Employee Engagement” of at least 60%

5. An average Your Say score for “My Manager” of at least 63%

FCO Services will report to Parliament on its success against these targets through its annual report and accounts for 2019-20.
