Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government how programmes arising from public service agreements are monitored and assessed . [HL1941]

Progress on delivering the public service agreements (PSAs) is reported by departments to Parliament in the departmental annual reports (published in spring/summer) and the autumn performance reports.

The first autumn performance reports assessing progress to date on the 2007 Comprehensive Spending Review PSAs were published at the end of 2008.

Senior responsible owners are appointed for each PSA, and are responsible for monitoring and driving delivery of the PSA including internal reporting of progress. The Prime Minister's Delivery Unit also advises the Prime Minister and the Chancellor throughout the spending period.
