The Unit was set up in 2002, bringing together the Performance and Innovation Unit (PIU) and the Prime Minister's Forward Strategy Unit (FSU).
Gareth Davies is the Director of the Unit. The previous directors of the Unit have been Stephen Aldridge, Jamie Rentoul, Geoff Mulgan and Suma Chakrabarti.
The Unit publishes an Impact Tracker report, which provides an overview of the implementation and impacts of completed Strategy Unit reports.
The great majority of Strategy Unit projects have led, or will lead, to published outputs of some form. Some projects are fully public and culminate in published reports (including statements of future policy). Some influence the direction of government policy rather than leading directly to published reports by the Unit. Some of the work is private and results in confidential advice to Ministers.
The Strategy Unit usually produces a limited number of printed reports at the time of publication. These are available on request from the Strategy Unit. All of our reports are available electronically on this site.
