Decision Maker: Babergh Cabinet
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: Yes
It was RESOLVED: -
1.1 That the first three tiers of the Babergh Outcomes Framework as the new strategic approach to measuring performance for the council be agreed.
1.2 That SLT will work with corporate managers to develop Tier-4 of the Framework (relating to service specific measures, outputs and KPI’s) which will follow in tandem with the 2022-2023 service planning cycle and future quarterly progress reports on the Outcomes Framework and the Corporate Delivery Plan be noted.
1.3 That delegation of any minor changes to the framework to the AD for Customer, Digital Transformation and Improvement in consultation with the relevant Portfolio holder be approved.
REASON FOR DECISION
The Outcomes Framework will drive strategic change and improvement and provide a golden thread for Babergh’s strategy and business planning arrangements.
Alternative Options Considered and Rejected:
1.1 Do nothing and continue to measure performance using the existing performance framework.
1.2 Use the existing performance framework but review the key performance indicators.
1.3 Neither of these alternatives were considered viable as they would not achieve the strategic change and improvement to corporate planning needed in Babergh. They would also not achieve the required performance integration with finance and risk management.
