Final CPA assessment details

  • Comment

The Audit Commission has revealed the details of the last ever comprehensive performance assessment (CPA).

Amongst the changes made are the removal of temporary protection given in the last two years to councils whose corporate assessment score had gone down and a return to earlier measures of homelessness.

Meanwhile, the Commission has pledged to work with councils whose services were affected by last year's floods to ensure they are not unfairly penalised.

The measures amount to minimal change in the last year of the CPA before it is superseded by the Comprehensive Area Assessment next year. The final round of CPA scores will be published in February 2009.

The Commission's managing director of local government, Gareth Davies, said: "In January we consulted stakeholders about some minor refinements of the CPA Harder Test framework, and the responses were largely supportive.

"It was also widely agreed that there should be a consistency of approach and minimal changes to the performance indicator sets so that improvements can be readily seen to ensure stability in the CPA results for this final year."
