The Department reviews progress against its priorities and commitments using performance indicators and reviews performance against its Business Plan objectives.

The Department has 12 performance indicators, split into input and impact indicators, which are used to review the Department’s performance. These performance indicators are published on the DCMS website and regularly updated:

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.

Input Indicators

• Number of premises covered per £ millions of broadband delivery programme expenditure.• Ratio of charitable giving (donations and sponsorship) to Grant-in-Aid for cultural institutions funded by DCMS. (Pence per £1 of Grant-in-Aid). • Public Funding per Eligible Student at Schools Competing in School Games (£ per student)• 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 (ODA) programme).

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.

Impact Indicators

• Number of people directly employed in tourism in the UK

• Number of overseas visitors to the UK • Total Amount of Creative Employment in the UK• Ofcom's Best in Europe Scorecard• Total amount of charitable giving (donations and sponsorship) to cultural institutions funded by DCMS (£ millions)• Total visits to DCMS sponsored museums and galleries
