Measuring performance in Blackpool

It’s APSE’s annual performance networks seminar at Blackpool and despite the horrendous weather most of the delegates appear to have made it.

Helen Sullivan from Birmingham University opened the conference and focused on likely changes to local government services created by austerity and Government policy. She stated that one of the positive impacts of the current fiscal crisis was a reinvigoration of local democracy and political debate. Helen’s view was that this had been denuded by the pursuit of consensus over the past ten years or so.

Michael Hughes, Director of Studies from the Audit Commission stated that the need for accurate, valid, reliable, timely, relevant and complete data will not diminish when the Commission closes down.
