Abstract

This paper describes the origins, operation and impact of three performance regimes in England (Comprehensive Performance Assessment), Scotland (Best Value Audits) and Wales (Wales Programme for Improvement). The comparative analysis produces a number of differences between the countries which includes their approach to publishing performance data (league tables) and the extent to which inspections are tailored to the local context. The paper concludes by highlighting a number of issues and challenges that will be of interest not just to researchers but also to practitioners and policy-makers in all three countries and beyond.
