The reporting of performance data to Ministers and the Permanent Secretary is based on risk analysis, is a core management function and is aligned with the governance structure with the Executive Board formally monitoring performance monthly. Performance data is reported to Ministers and the Permanent Secretary on Ministerial correspondence and Parliamentary Questions daily, Freedom of Information requests weekly, and public appointments fortnightly. For major projects, key performance data is reported at least a monthly, depending on assessments of priority and risk.
