Reporting on public sector performance
The performance of the public sector is in the public eye more and more. Questions about whether the delivery of services is improving, how performance targets are being met and whether public money is being spent economically, efficiently and effectively are at the heart of the debates. Lots of information is now published, but how reliable is this information?
This publication is designed to assist those requiring assurance over non-financial information to develop, implement and refine assurance frameworks. It considers the key aspects of an assurance framework for reporting on non-financial information, the alternative options that are available, and highlights examples of good practice.
Reliable information is essential to government decision-makers and receiving assurance on this information is more important than ever as we seek to spend our money wisely and achieve more with less.
