Input indicators show what is being ‘bought’ with public money, i.e. the resources being invested into delivering the results that we and our partners are aiming to achieve.
- Number of premises covered per £million of broadband delivery programme expenditure
- Ratio of charitable giving (donations and sponsorship) to Grant-in-Aid for cultural institutions funded by DCMS
- Public Funding per Eligible Student at Schools Competing in School Games
- Progress towards delivery on time and to budget of Olympic and Paralympic Games
Impact indicators give information on the outcomes of our work. They reflect the quality and effectiveness of the programmes and priorities set out in our business plan and the impact they have on society. They provide a broad picture of performance, with a particular focus on whether fairness is being improved.
