Effective Performance Division
The Effective Performance Division (EPD), within the Modernising
Public Services Group, aims to improve the effectiveness and quality
of public services. In doing this it works closely with the
Treasury. In particular, it supports cross-boundary approaches to
improvement in the public sector, through, for example, benchmarking, and
performance measurement and the Invest to Save Budget. It also promotes innovation, partnership working and risk management in
the wider public sector.
As the successor to the Next Steps Team it remains the lead authority
on Executive Agency policy across Government. It also has lead
responsibility for the Better Quality Services programme.
The following are key areas of the Division's Work:
