§ Mr. Willetts
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if he will list the targets and performance indicators for his Department's policies. 294W
§ Mr. Rooker
The Department has set out the key performance targets on which it will be judged in its PSA, and the measures of success it will use in the Output and Performance Analysis (OPA) published in March this year.
In addition, the Secretary of State sets annual targets for the Department's agencies. These targets are announced to Parliament by means of a written parliamentary answer. A full list of the targets and target dates for the Department's agencies can be found in the Next Steps Report and in individual agency Business Plans. Performance against targets is also reported in agencies' Annual Reports. Copies of these documents can be found in the Library.
These high level targets are supported at operational level by numerous other internal targets in order to ensure delivery by individual units.
