Motoring Agencies Business Plans and Performance Frameworks for 2012/13

Written statement by Mike Penning MP, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Transport.

I am pleased to announce the publication of the business plans for the Highways Agency and the Department for Transport’s Motoring Agencies - the Driving Standards Agency (DSA), the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA), the Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA), and the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA).

The Business Plans set out:

  • the services each agency will deliver and any significant changes they plan to make,
  • the resources they require, and
  • a framework of measures by which their performance will be assessed.

The measures allow service users and members of the public to assess how the agencies are performing in delivering their key services and reforms and in managing agency finances.

The business plans will be available electronically on agency websites and copies will be placed in the libraries of both Houses in due course.
