Mayor answers to London
Work programme (1)
Question by Jenny Jones
What progress have you made in establishing an effective performance management framework for the Work Programme in London?
Answer by Boris Johnson
I am not establishing a performance management framework for the Work Programme. The Work Programme is a DWP funded programme and as such performance management remains the responsibility of the DWP. However, as data is made available on Work Programme performance I will ensure that performance is scrutinised to ensure that the Work Programme is delivering effectively in London.
My priority is ensuring that long-term unemployed Londoners are supported back into work. This relies on the Work Programme being a success. This is why I am ensuring our procurement and investment plans are aligned with support available.
