Management information: summary of data requests

A summary of consolidated data requests shows progress in rationalising reporting and requests for management information from departments.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government



The Read report recommends that:

…the centre of government needs a capability to provide better and more efficient support to departments and more effective leadership on management information. This should include reporting on comparisons between departments, assisting with technology to automate data collection and exercising control over central requests to departments for information. Much of the reporting and requests for information from departments can and should be rationalised.

The consolidated data request reduction summary demonstrates the progress that has been made in streamlining progress.
