These are split into input and impact indicators.
Input indicators show what is being ‘bought’ with public money, i.e. the resources being invested into delivering the results that we and our partners are aiming to achieve.
Impact indicators give information on the outcomes of our work. They reflect the quality and effectiveness of the programmes and priorities set out in our business plan and the impact they have on society. They provide a broad picture of performance, with a particular focus on whether fairness is being improved.
Our performance indicators are published in the Business Plan Quarterly Data Summary which are published quarterly.
Further technical information on each indicator (Excel) is available.
|Input indicator||Latest release||Change since last release||Data source|
|Number of premises covered per £million of broadband delivery programme expenditure.||N/A||N/A||Broadband Delivery UK|
|Progress towards delivery on time and to budget of Olympic and Paralympic Games (ratio of actual spend as percentage of anticipated final cost to percentage of actual progress of Olympic Delivery Authority programme).||As of 31st December 2011, the actual spend on the ODA capital programme was £4.87bn and the Current Baseline Budget for the total capital programme, including post games transformation, was £5.24bn (93% of the budget). The percentage progress on the ODA total capital programme was 93.5%. Therefore the ratio of spend to progress was 93.0/93.5 = 0.995 (a figure less than one means that progress achieved is greater than actual spend).||At the end of September 2011, the ratio of spend to progress on the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) capital programme was 0.998.||Quarterly Olympic Indicator|
