Dr. Howells

Following the 2000 Spending Review the Department conducted a benchmarking study of value for money in bodies funded by the Department. This resulted in the 2002 Spending Review PSA target to improve significantly the value for money of the Department's sponsored (Museums and Galleries and Lottery Distributing) bodies, measured by a matrix of NDPB indicators.
