Who is the NWIEP?
The North West Improvement and Efficiency Partnership was established in
response to the National Improvement and Efficiency Strategy to drive the
region’s ambitions for excellence through improvement and efficiency.

We aim to help councils and the sub-regions drive their own improvement
and efficiency agenda for the benefit of the region’s public services.

     Sub Regional Finance
Approximately 60% of the funding, £4.3 million has been allocated directly to the sub
regions in year one

A calculation of size, number of authorities and population was used to determine how
much each sub region received

The sub regions were asked to submit plans to NWIEP explaining what they will spend this
money on and what they will achieve by doing so, addressing the priorities set out in the
regional plan, on a pre agreed form

The submissions were taken to the NWIEP Management Board for approval 20.05.08

The money can be claimed quarterly against expenditure

We were initially the only region in the country to take this devolved approach, but others
are now following!
  Regional Providers
£4 million has been allocated to the regional enablers in year one

There is no guarantee that this funding will continue

The Management Board will determine what money is allocated to which
regional providers based upon identified needs in years 2 and 3

Identify ongoing issues

Invest improvement and efficiency support effectively

To support your colleagues within your sub region who may be struggling on
specific delivery areas
CLG remain unclear about performance requirements with the only
exceptions being the clear 3% efficiency target and LAA delivery

A performance monitoring framework has been developed and issued to the
sub regions and regional providers alike for quarterly completion

The outcomes of the performance monitoring framework will be taken to the
NWIEP Partnership Management Board who are accountable for the money
that has been issued.
A number of employees from NWCE and NWIN have been retained to
finalise their existing work or to support the transition to NWIEP.

However, any ongoing roles within NWIEP will be advertised

It is hoped that the small core team will be in place by the beginning of 2009
to support strategy, delivery and sustainability
   NWIEP Vision and Mission
Our vision: The North West Improvement and Efficiency Partnership will lead
the ambition, foster innovation and share best practice and learning to support
the public sector in delivering better outcomes for their communities. In doing
so, it will establish the North West’s reputation as an innovator within the
national improvement and efficiency agenda.

Our mission statement: The North West Improvement and Efficiency
Partnership will support public sector organisations by funding, co-ordinating
and communicating a range of focused programmes that will significantly
transform the delivery of their efficiency and improvement strategies. We will be
instrumental in increasing spread of best practice across the region’s public
sector organisations. We will be a forerunner in the drive to secure leading-edge
public services for the North West. We will be a focal point to inspire the North
West’s public sector to stretch for the best possible performance in order to
deliver world-class services.
