LSPs and the Comprehensive Area Assessment East
Herts LSP 6th February 2009
2
Who inspects local public services?
  • Audit Commission
  • Audits the accounts of most local public sector
    bodies
  • Assesses the use of resources and performance of
    these bodies (organisation assessment)
  • Seven inspectorates
  • Inspect specific services eg childrens services,
    police, fire etc

3
Who audits and inspects LSPs?
  • LSPs are not required to produce accounts for
    audit, their finances are reported via the
    partner bodies.
  • LSPs are not subject to a formal inspection
    regime.

4
So what is the relationship between auditors and
inspectors and LSPs?
  • The relationship is an indirect one
  • Expenditure by LSPs will be audited in the
    accounts via the accounts of the partner bodies
  • The performance of LSPs will contribute towards
    the achievement of targets by its partner bodies
  • From 2009 the Audit Commission will be leading on
    a new Comprehensive Area Assessment (CAA)

5
What is CAA?
  • Comprehensive Area Assessment
  • Does what it says on the tin
  • A joined up assessment for joined up local
    services
  • Seven local service inspectorates are coming
    together to provide a rounded view of how well
    local services are working together in order to
    improve what matters in each place
  • The success of partnerships in delivering joined
    up services and outcomes will be key to the
    assessment

6
Area assessment three key questions
  • How well do local priorities express community
    needs and aspirations?
  • How well are the outcomes and improvements needed
    being delivered?
  • What are the prospects for future improvement?
  • Focus on priority outcomes targeted within
    Local Area Agreements and Sustainable Community
    Strategies

7
CAA and geography
  • LAA boundary is used for reporting area
    assessment
  • But what we report is not confined by boundaries
  • Local neighbourhood concerns will also be raised
    eg at LSP level

8
Example Hertfordshire Health Profiles
9
Key differences from existing assessments
  • Focus on outcomes, not just on organisations
  • How well are people served by their local public
    services?, not just How good is the
    organisation
  • Attention to local priorities, not one-size fits
    all
  • Forward looking assessment, not just past
    performance
  • Not an inspection event but dialogue
  • Co-ordinated, risk-based inspection

My Barshire, in summary
Fifty-eight per cent of people in Barshire are
satisfied with their area as a place to live
compared to an average of 64 per cent in similar
areas and 62 per cent nationally. People are
worried about whether people from different
backgrounds get on well together. More needs to
be done to help make sure that people coming into
Barshire can integrate with existing communities.
Barshires public services are getting better
at protecting the environment. They are using
much less energy to heat and power their own
buildings. They are also helping local people to
reduce the energy they use and many people have
been given free advice and cheaper insulation.
The economy in Barshire is growing. More and
more people are being helped to get jobs. There
are many fewer people on benefits and the new
jobs are better paid and higher skilled. More
people are being helped to start their own
businesses, and existing businesses are being
helped to grow
