The Lifting Burdens taskforce plans to have a rolling programme of reviews looking at the requirements relating to individual Government Departments, service areas or outcomes. It is anticipated that these reviews will be published at regular intervals over the next two years.

As the taskforce carries out further reviews, it is envisaged that the Government Department(s) that are the originators of specific individual reporting items will respond to the relevant set of recommendations after consideration of each review.
