Performance Management Reporting: Quarter 1 Guide to reporting Key Service Priorities 2005/06 Overall performance for Q1 Key Service Priorities 2006/07 Other performance indicators Next steps
Guide to Reporting = Work is on target to achieve the objectives as specified. = Warning that the achievement of the target in the way specified in the plan may not be possible or the outturn is <10% from the target. Although no decision is required at this stage to amend the action, an explanation is required. = Target is no longer achievable in the way specified or the outturn is >10% from the target. This requires a decision about remedial action. Direction of travel for the previous quarter (not applicable to Key Service Priorities in Q1 as these are new for this financial year).
KSPs Carried Over from 2005/06 Environment Committee Environmental Action Zone area - completed with a report to Environment Committee in June. – Agreed that a similar methodology would be used for the next EAZ area, once the Joint Action Group has agreed upon this area.

Achieve ‘Secure Car Park’ status at Hook Road Car Park. This remains at ‘Red’. – Following a meeting held in July, a pre-assessment will take place on 19 September. This will clarify what further investment is needed to achieve this status, so a decision can be made whether to proceed. Recycling 18% of the waste stream. – Target was missed by 0.2%. Recycling remains a Key Service Priority for 2006/07. – In the first 4 months for 2006/07 18.2% of the waste stream was recycled, and this is set to increase with the launch of garden waste and plastic bottle options.

Next Steps It is recommended that Financial Policy Panel refers areas of concern to the relevant policy committees, where managers will report on the latest situation and make proposals for action / remediation. Particular attention needs to be given to those areas at ‘Red’ as remedial action needs to be taken to get these back on track. Q2’s Performance Management report will be available in early November and key issues will be reported direct to Policy Committees. This will include a ½ yearly BVPI health check. Broad Key Service Priority areas for 2007/08 for policy committees will be agreed in October/November’s committee cycle; and the SMART targets agreed in January’s committee cycle.
