7 Cross-cutting nature of PSA targets PSA 20: Improve long term housing supply and affordability – 8 Departments Indicator 1: Number of net additional homes provided. TARGET Indicator 2: Trends in affordability: This will be measured using the ratio of lower quartile house prices to lower quartile earnings Indicator 3: Number of affordable homes delivered (gross). TARGET Indicator 4: Number of households in temporary accommodation. TARGET Indicator 5: Average Energy Efficiency Rating for new homes. Indicator 6: Local planning authorities to have adopted the necessary Development Plan Documents, in accordance with their Local Development Schemes, to bring forward developable land for housing. TARGET

8 National, outcome-focussed indicators underpin all PSAs Collaboratively developed Delivery Agreement for each PSA Accountability within Whitehall strengthened Embed genuine user engagement in design, delivery and governance across key public services. Reduced bureaucracy and unnecessary data burdens CSR07: key features of reform

9 Accountability structures that drive delivery Accountability is key and rests with both politicians and officials: Prime Minister, Chancellor, Cabinet Named Secretaries of State Senior Responsible Officer for each PSA A Delivery Board, comprising senior officials from contributing departments and chaired by the Senior Responsible Officer A single responsible Cabinet Committee for each PSA Permanent secretaries Transparency and accountability to public Published set of 30 PSAs, that set out what they aim to achieve and how they are going to do it, and are supported by a clear accountability structure.

10 Measures and levers drive delivery No formal or legal sanctions for ministers or departments Some PSAs have national targets in their Delivery Agreement Inspections – performance against national target e.g. Ofsted in education Accountability structures Contracts – train companies can be fined for delays Financial – sometimes extra funding or closure of frontline services Earned Autonomy for the frontline e.g. NHS Foundation Trusts Performance management – individual performance reporting mechanisms Reputational motivations – Departmental performance reporting and performance tables Hard levers of influence Soft levers of influence Direct accountability Contractual / regulatory Common purpose Wider community E.g. Skills PSA - Indicator 2. 6 Higher education initial participation rate Target: Increase participation in Higher Education towards 50 per cent of those aged 18 to 30 with growth of at least a percentage point every two years to the academic year 2010/11.

11 PSAs have worked best when… Focus on priorities across delivery chain Understand the delivery chain Are ambitious Based on systematic delivery planning Have defined indicators and targets Have timely, high quality information Recognise targets are not the only tools to improve performance Vision for the future… Citizen empowerment New professionalism for the frontline Strategic leadership from the centre
