Local authorities need to ensure greater interaction with central government to ensure their performance-management systems work, says a new report from the National Computing Centre.
The NCC report, “Performance Management in Local Authorities”, also considers how central government uses key indicators to measure the performance of local authorities.
In addition, the report says local authorities may need private-sector help in the effective use of performance management systems.
The report comes as the government plans to introduce new performance indicators to measure the performance and delivery of local authorities.
The move will reduce the number of government indicators from 1,500 to just 200.
