Review of the National Performance Framework’s National Outcomes

Posted on 21/02/17 at 10:36am

Background

The National Performance Framework (NPF) sets out the Scottish Government’s vision for Scotland, and supports the government and wider public sector to improve the quality of life for the people of Scotland. Following the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015, Scottish Ministers are now under a duty to consult on, develop and publish a new set of National Outcomes for Scotland.

What the review involves

The purpose of the review is to determine a set of National Outcomes which reflect the values and aspirations of the people of Scotland. In addition, the aim is to create an overall framework for the outcomes which is meaningful, accessible and appealing. The review will build on views expressed in other recent Scottish Government consultations such as Fairer Scotland > and Healthier Scotland >.

Phase One of the review has involved consulting with the public on what kind of Scotland they would like to live in. This has been carried out through a series of public discussions as well as street stalls run by the Carnegie UK Trust and Oxfam Scotland. 

For Phase Two of the review we are seeking the views of expert stakeholders (e.g. practitioners, analysts and policy makers) on a new set of National Outcomes as well as possible changes to the current NPF format. We are seeking views on:

  • What kind of Scotland would people like to live in?
  • How do we need to change the national outcomes to reflect these visions?
  • Does the current NPF format successfully reflect, measure and report on people’s ambitions for Scotland, and if not, how should it be changed?

There are still places available at the structured conversation events.
