Strategic Audit: Progress and challenges for the UK
The Prime Minister asked the Strategy Unit to undertake a new Strategic Audit to assess the progress made and challenges facing the UK. The report, "Strategic Audit: progress and challenges for the UK" aims to provide a balanced and objective assessment to help establish a factual context for policy-making and wider discussion. The first strategic audit was published in 2003.
The Strategic Audit shows that Britain has made considerable and sustained progress in many key areas. These include the overall performance and stability of the economy, closing productivity gaps, improving educational attainment, tackling child and prisoner poverty, substantially reducing crime, and improving health outcomes and the capacity of the NHS.
In other areas, the challenges are long running and structural, such as meeting the growing demands on transport infrastructure, ensuring enough houses are built, getting the hardest-to-reach groups back into work, and further improving the life chances of those born into the poorest households.
