FCO Services operates as a trading fund of the FCO. I have set it the following performance targets for 2019-2020:

  1. Achievement of a return on capital employed of at least 3.5% (statutory commitment)
  2. A productivity ratio of at least 80%, measuring actual billable hours vs. available billable hours
  3. In-year customer satisfaction results averaging at least 80%
  4. A Your Say score for “Employee Engagement” of at least 60%
  5. An average Your Say score for “My Manager” of at least 63%

FCO Services will report to Parliament on its success against these targets through its Annual Report and Accounts for 2019-2020.
