The Outcomes, Evidence and Performance Board (OEPB) provides national
co-ordination and leadership for community planning in Scotland.
Our purpose is to support better decisions that improve the lives of Scotland's people. We work with all organisations involved in community planning to understand:
This underpins our three main roles.
The Improvement Service (IS) is the national improvement organisation for local government in Scotland.
Our purpose is to help councils and their partners to improve the health, quality of life and opportunities of all people in Scotland through community leadership, strong local governance and the delivery of high quality, efficient local services.
Through a series of principles, the IS works to promote improvement in local government and among its partners to support them improve outcomes and reduce the outcome gaps within populations and within areas.
The IS delivers a range of products and services that support CPPs to build their capacity to deliver the public service reform agenda.
The IS has a non-partisan role to support all elected members in Scotland.
The Improvement Services produces a series of newsletters on a range of subjects, including myaccount, elected members, tellmescotland as well as the main IS newsletter. Subscribe on this page.

We’re offering practical support to CPPs by expanding the Community Planning in Scotland website to include more resources, support and showcases of CPPs’ work and
progress, identifying gaps in the support for CPPs – and working to plug them, and building analytical capacity across public services.
We're developing and sharing a narrative about current patterns of outcomes across Scotland and what works based on research by What Works Scotland, as well as developing an approach to evaluation that can be used by CPPs.
We're reviewing performance management arrangements across community planning and we'll propose and implement recommendations based on the findings of the review.
We're improving access to and understanding of data by exploring opportunities to consolidate existing data resources, increasing the local data available in open formats and exploring how to fill the gaps in the data currently available to measure outcomes at local level.
We're supporting CPPs to improve their approach to the sharing of real time data and intelligence at a local level, and we'll work with the Information Commissioner, Caldicott Guardians and others to overcome challenges to data sharing.
