The suite of documents that make up the PDF are working documents, and are to be embedded within the management of our organisation. To be effective, the PDF will provide a clear statement of our aspirations and be responsive to the ever-changing circumstances, pressures and opportunities we face. To achieve this, we propose that different component parts of the Framework are reviewed across two separate timeframes:-


  • Vision, Aims and Principles will be reviewed every five years.
  • Objectives and Proposals will be reviewed annually in line with the Authority’s Business Plan, budget process and performance rounds.

We also recognise that the PDF provides a new structure to guide ongoing work. While we believe that it will offer a robust and useful tool, we recognise that it is currently untested. We anticipate that areas for improvement may become apparent once the PDF has been adopted and tested against the actual needs of the organisation.


For this reason we believe the initial annual review in 2011 will provide an opportunity to assess the first year performance of the Vision, Aims and Principles.

Monitoring progress is an important component of the review process. Establishing clear targets is key. We have identified the need to integrate targets as a component part of the Authority’s Business Plan, and this will form a core part of the 2011 review.
