Minutes:

The Corporate Performance Manager provided Members of the Performance / Administration Committee with a copy of the draft Data Quality Policy for review.

 

To reflect the changes that have recently taken place in relation to the introduction of the new Corporate Plan’s Performance Management Framework, and other relevant amendments, it was felt to be prudent to bring the revised Data Quality Policy back to the Performance / Administration Committee for discussion and subsequent approval by the Lead Member, in line with the adopted process outlined in the policy.

 

The Committee considered the Data Quality Policy in depth. Following questions from Members, the Corporate Performance Manager and Director Corporate Services highlighted the following:

 

·         The Performance Management Framework has been refined and now contains measures that provide better value.

·         GBC’s Data Quality Policy is considered more comprehensive than other Local Authorities.

·         Regarding the shared service with Medway; the same suite of Performance Framework Indicators are used for both Authorities. Data security is ensured by using both Authorities Firewalls.

 

 

The Data Quality Policy was discussed by the Committee and approval was taken by the Lead Member for Performance & Administration.
