Key Performance Indicators

Key indicator results should be read in conjunction with the Council’s relevant Public Performance Report to help readers form a view as to how the Council performed.  Key indicators provide comparison with performance in previous years, national and minimum/maximum results across all other Scottish local authorities where available.  Performance indicators are monitored by Council Committees committed to providing Best Value services to the people of Moray.

The Local Government Benchmarking Framework represents a bold approach taken by Scotland’s local authorities to comparing performance and outcomes over time.  The framework brings together a wide range of information about how all Scottish councils perform.  The benchmarking will help Scottish councils improve local services for local communities by shifting focus away from processes and meaningless league tables – and onto efficiency, effectiveness and outcomes.  The data benchmarks each local authority’s performance and/or outcome.  All national benchmarking indicators are included within the Council’s Key Indicators (see above) and results relating to the Council and its family groups are extracted and presented in performance reports to the Council’s Service Committees and the scrutiny Committee.

This year, the introduction of an online tool mylocalcouncil allows users to interrogate and compare data across themes, time and all councils.

Moray Council Assurance and Improvement Plan

The Assurance and Improvement Plan process is shared risk assessment undertaken by a Local Area Network made up of representatives of all the main government audit and inspection agencies.  Their aim, to focus government scrutiny activity where most needed and to outline the scrutiny activity to be undertaken over a three year period.  The updated 2012-15 Assurance and Improvement Plan, published in May 2012, highlighted that while there had been some evidence of progress, there were still some areas of risk and uncertainty and concluded that target audit work was required which was carried out in November 2012 and an Assurance and Improvement Plan Update 2013-16 (PDF) was published in April 2013.
