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.
