An overall programme plan was agreed with the Delivery Plan National Programme Board in August 2017, mapping the work currently underway with detail on specific actions, targets, timescales and key milestones. This included a programme plan and regular monitoring and reporting on activity as result of the Delivery Plan. Work on a set of success criteria for the Delivery Plan as a whole and an underpinning set of performance indicators is being finalised for the end of this year. It will be supplemented by the work underway to model the performance and financial impacts of the Delivery Plan as a whole, which is being commissioned.
