Large elements of the Providers performance is unseen Quality Financial Management

Relationship with Supply Chain Local engagement Value added activities Performance and Contract Management Operational Performance Managers (OPM) Contract Managers (CM) Project Integrity Officers (PIO) Performance and Contract Management OPMs 4 OPMs geographically based OPMs still look above the water line at the monthly meeting with Providers Responsible for co-ordination of CFO activity taking place in a

specific region including match funding and regional relationships Rely on the expertise of Contract Managers, Project Integrity Officers, Statistics, Finance and other specialists to understand what is happening below the water line Performance and Contract Management CMs CMs ensure that the Providers are delivering what they said they would in their tender Includes introduction of Merlin principles, supply

chain analysis and assessment, interrogation of Providers financial submissions (new procedures have been introduced) Concentrate on helping us gain a better understanding of what is being delivered below the water line Performance and Contract Management PIOs PIOs support the OPM in ensuring that; the participants journey is appropriately captured and that the soft outcomes (not covered by the Data

Integrity Team) are fully evidenced insights are shared and acted upon match funding and regional relationships are functioning appropriately Case Assessment and Tracking System CATS Version 6 CATS Version 6 CATS link with Current Systems Main CATS Screen All essential information on one screen

Red, Amber, Green - Easily read and understood Automatically modified screens for prison and probation clients. Quick and easy to use. Distance Travelled Graph Turning Data into Information CATS as a statistical tool Geographic Variation Example Would you consider self employment? CATS inbuilt APF application allows for highly accurate geocoding of participant addresses. In this example we can see that the

proportion of those participants who would consider self employment varies greatly throughout the country. On average, 4.2% of participants from the South West stated they would consider self employment. In contrast, self employment was only considered by 1.9% of participants from the North East. Geographic Variation Example Do you have access to transport? In many cases there is large intraregional variation in the barriers faced by participants. In this example we can see that the proportion of participants with access to transport varies greatly within the

East of England. Those in the areas close to London are much more likely to have access to transport than those participants from the more rural northern parts of the region Progress - Action plans and notes Traditionally difficult to evaluate how soft indicators such as action plans and notes effect the progression of a participant towards higher employability. Progress - Motivation Participants generally start the project unmotivated and disengaged. Improvements to motivational levels lead to a marked improvement to the participants ability to gain employment, as highlighted in the example below. 5

Network analysis shows that many outcomes are often achieved in conjunction with other specific outcomes, forming outcome clusters.
