The Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Bill, which is currently before Parliament, will abolish Best Value Performance Indicators (except for Welsh Best Value authorities and the police). In line with our commitment in the local government White Paper "Strong and Prosperous Communities" we are developing a single set of national indicators for local government, working alone or in partnership, which will replace existing sets, including BVPIs. This set of indicators will underpin the new performance framework, including Local Area Agreements and the Comprehensive Area Assessment.
