Value For Money

We demonstrate value for money in our work in two ways: how efficiently we deliver our products and services, and their contribution to achieving our goals.

Value for money will be assessed through a combination of:

· annual quality, quantity and timeliness measures (detailed efficiency measures are contained in the Estimates of Appropriation 2009/10)

· impact and cost effectiveness measures for our outputs

· indicators of progress towards goals
