Programme for Government

Draft Programme for Government Framework

draft Programme for Government Framework was consulted on during 2016 and uses an outcomes-based approach. These outcomes are things with which people can identify, such as living longer and healthier lives or  attracting better jobs - and are designed to stay in place for a generation rather than a single Assembly term.

The framework has been used as the basis for the Outcomes Delivery Plan which sets out the actions that departments will take to give effect to the previous Executive’s stated objectives of Improving wellbeing - by tackling disadvantage and driving economic growth.

Monitoring the draft Programme for Government

The position and progress of each Outcome is measured using a range Indicators. A dedicated PfG website is under construction but the 12 Outcomes and 49 Indicators can currently be seen in the interactive  interactive outcomes viewer.

Metadata for each indicator can be seen in the Measurement Annexes.

More information on the development of the draft Programme for Government, including the consultation and Outcomes Delivery Plan is available on The Executive Office Website.
