HC Deb 10 June 2002 vol 386 c726W
Tony Wright

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development if she will list the performance targets that her Department, its agencies and non-departmental public bodies are required to meet, apart from those set out in the public service agreements for 1999 to 2002 and 2001 to 2004; and if she will specify for each target(a) who sets it and (b) who monitors achievement against it. [60473]

Clare Short

My Department's performance targets are fully set out in our PSAs for 1999–02 and 2001–04. Progress against these PSAs is reported on annually in DFID's departmental report.

DFID is currently responsible for three non-departmental public bodies:

  • Commonwealth Scholarship Commission
  • Crown Agents Holding and Realisation Board
  • Overseas Service Pensions Scheme Advisory Board.

As none of these bodies employs any staff or has any facilities, the only targets that they are required to meet are the Government's targets on equal opportunities for public appointments. These are set by the Cabinet Office and reported on annually. Full details can be found in "Public Bodies: Opening Up Public Appointments 2002–05" which is readily available in the Library of the House.
