The Prime Minister has announced new plans to hand power to the public with every department publishing a plan that sets clear priorities and measureable milestones.
These Structural Reform Plans (SRPs) mean anyone can check that departments meet their commitments.
They are the key tool of the coalition government for ensuring that departments are accountable for the implementation of the reforms set out in the coalition agreement. They replace the old, top-down systems of targets and central micromanagement.
Below is a list of department SRPs published so far. The pdfs are a temporary measure and the data will be presented in a single location in a more open format at a later date:
- Cabinet Office SRP (pdf, 218kb)
- Department for Business, Innovation and Skills SRP (pdf, 225kb)
- Department for Communities and Local Government SRP (pdf, 137kb)
- Department for Culture, Media and Sport SRP (pdf, 167kb)
- Department for Education SRP (pdf, 107kb)

- Department for Work and Pensions SRP (pdf, 133kb)
- Home Office SRP (pdf, 141kb)
- Ministry of Justice SRP (pdf, 169kb)
- Political Reform SRP (pdf, 154kb)
Progress reports on each of the above Structural Reform Plans are also published each month:
- October SRP progress reports
- September SRP progress reports
- August SRP progress reports
- July SRP progress reports
The publication of these monthly reports will promote transparency and accountability across government and will allow people to check that departments are meeting their commitments.
The Structural Reform plans are published in draft until the results of the Spending Review are known. When finalised, they will become part of each department’s business plan and will be updated annually.
