Working together to achieve a new direction for NSW: Alternative formats available on request to PIAC - Contact PIAC
This submission responds to the the adequacy and appropriateness of performance measures for reporting progress of the NSW State Plan and the adequacy of the audit requirements for the Plan. The principles by which the measures were assessed included clarity – ensuring the measure meets the intention, consistency over time – so progress can be measured from year to year, and that there is consistency within the plan – measures do not lead to outcomes which contradict within the plan. The scope of the measures were also considered to ensure that all aspects of well being of the community could be measured, not just financial reporting. Examples of where targets and measures lack clarity or contradict each other are included in the submission.
