3.           Introduction

3.1          As part of the Audit Commission Comprehensive Performance Assessment
             (CPA), core local authority services are assessed and scored. A scoring
             system of 1 – 4 is used, with 1 being the lowest and 4 the highest. Seven
             areas of service are included within this process, with education and social
             care given more importance in reaching the overall service score than other
             areas.

3.2          The service areas assessed as part of the CPA core services are:

             -Education

             -Social Care

             Children’s Services

                                              1
      Adult’s Services

      -Environment

      -Housing

      -Libraries & Leisure

      -Benefits

      -Use of resources

3.3   The Government intends to use the outcomes of the Commission's CPA work
      to target support to those authorities most needing it, and to confer freedoms
      and flexibilities to the better performing authorities.
