Technical note: UKTI's monitoring and evaluation evidence

This note explains how UKTI measures its performance and summarises the latest evidence.



This note shows evidence of the financial benefits generated by UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) trade services.

Evidence is gathered quarterly through the Performance and Impact Monitoring Survey (PIMS) carried out by OMB Research, an independent market research company specialising in business surveys.

In addition to the evidence collected through PIMS, estimates of the impact of UKTI trade services are obtained through a rolling programme of independent evaluations of particular trade services.
