Dartford 's Corporate Performance Structure
There is a small corporate team which is responsible for Performance Management Framework, Risk, and Procurement.
The main areas of responsibility with regard to performanceare:
- Performance Management - the Council operates within an agreed Performance Management Framework which links the overall Corporate Plan and medium term financial strategy; which in turn links to Service Plans and individual appraisals. The Council has also introduced a web based Performance Management System called Covalent, managed by the Performance team.
- Performance Indicators - the team is the central hub in the collection and reporting of performance information, both internally to corporate management and Members and externally to the Audit Commission.
- Annual Performance Plan and Summary - each year the team annually collates and publishes performance related information, including performance indicators. The plan is published at the end of June each year and submitted for external audit.
