The Indicator Guide sets out the scope and aim of the Common Advice Performance Management Framework (CAPMF). It includes the measures used to assess performance and definitions for each indicator. The Guide also explains the process through which councils should submit data to the Improvement Service.
The first version of the Indicator Guide was created following numerous consultations involving all 32 Scottish local authorities, as well as key national stakeholders. Throughout the iterations of the framework to date, and through discussions with key stakeholders, the Indicator Guide has continued to be reviewed and revised.
The fifth version of the Indicator Guide, for reference during the 2018-19 iteration of the framework, is now available to download: CAMPF 2018-19 Indicator Guide.
