Chapter 4 – Monitoring and Reporting
To make a real difference to the disability employment rate in Scotland's public sector, any of the options set out in Chapter 2 - or alternatives - would likely require systems to be put in place to monitor and regularly report on outcomes.
If implemented as part of the PSED regime, the EHRC (a body reserved to the UK Government) would enforce the targets and report on progress as part of the current PSED reporting requirements.
Other approaches would require consideration of how we monitor and report progress towards achieving our goals.
Overall monitoring and reporting for the Disability Employment Action Plan will be developed, and we anticipate that any action to improve data quality and levels of disability employment in the public sector workforce will be part of that.
It is the Scottish Government's intention to report regularly on its work to increase disability employment rates. Whether or not targets are set, monitoring of progress towards the ambition to increase disability employment rates in the public sector will be important. Your views on how this can be done are welcomed.
