Performance, Delivery and Resilience Directorate

We provide the central function of co-ordination and support for performance, delivery and resilience activity across government and ensure that the organisation monitors and responds well to a range of concurrent risks.

We support the Deputy First Minister in executing and managing his portfolio responsibilities, including in:

  • resilience
  • delivery and outcomes across portfolios
  • government statistics
  • the office of the Chief Researcher
  • the National Performance Framework
  • government strategy, including the First Minister’s Programme for Government (PfG)

All of our activities see us work across the organisation to provide a strategic, co-ordinated and focussed approach to delivering outcomes, driving improvement and ensuring operational resilience.

This includes responsibility for:

  • ensuring effective planning, preparation and planning on how to respond and recover from incidents, events or emergencies
  • supporting a greater focus on delivery across the organisation, developing and implementing new performance and delivery arrangements
  • providing analytical support
