Description: Britain is in a global race – and to compete we need a world-class, 21st century Civil Service, capable of delivering a more balanced economy, a fairer society and the best public services. To help the Civil Service change to meet these challenges, we launched the Civil Service Reform Plan in June 2012. We then reviewed the progress made and updated the actions in the Civil Service Reform: One Year On report, published in July 2013. The Civil Service Reform Plan sets out a series of specific and priority actions to tackle long-standing weaknesses, build on existing strengths, and address the frustrations expressed by Ministers, civil servants and the public alike. The Plan sets out the priorities for action now – and is the first stage of the continuing programme of reform.

DCA text: From September 2013, the programme moved into tranche 2. The CSR Team undertook a process review over the summer to inform its approach to tranche 2, identifying areas for improvement and change, as we move into the different phase. Changes include: refining the governance, streamlining reporting processes prioritising programme effort and resources accordingly, a new focus on departmental realisation of benefits and improving programme-wide risk and issues management. At a Programme level Civil Service Reform has had a number of key achievements since Q1, including the successful launch of the One Year On report and the ‘Be Exceptional’ Civil Service Live event, both in July. Also in this period a number of the Programme’s component Actions have moved through the Project Lifecycle to closure or are being embedded and translated into outcomes in Q2 .Further key milestones that have been achieved this quarter have been the completion of the first tranche of the Commissioning Academy, introduction of the CS High Potential Scheme, publication of the first edition of Civil Service Quarterly, launch of the Open Policy Making website in Beta, and the announcement of a new Commercial Model for government. Whist a number of issues and risks exist to the programme, these are being actively managed and do not pose an unacceptable level of risk to delivery of the programme.
