Regular measurement of asset performance is a fundamental strand in the approach to making better use of assets. This is achieved through the regular collection of:
Statutory Performance Indicators
The Accounts Commission has a statutory responsibility to specify information that councils must publish about their performance, in the form of statutory performance indicators. The information is collected and published locally by each council after being checked by its auditor. It includes the following property asset management indicators:
The number of council buildings from which the council delivers services to the public and the percentage of these in which all public areas are suitable for and accessible to disabled people.
The proportion of operational accommodation that is in satisfactory condition.
The proportion of operational accommodation that is suitable for its current use.
School Estate Core Facts
The Scottish Government measures national progress against the aims and objectives of the school estate strategy Building our Future: Scotland's School Estate in the form of regular Core Facts.
Core Facts are a collective basket of measures, which are intended to be useful in illustrating trends within the school estate and to support West Lothian Council's School Estate Management Plan.
The Core Facts and Management Performance Measures on the School Estate include:
- The extent of the school estate
- Value of the school estate
- Condition of the school estate
- Sufficiency of the school estate
- Suitability of school estate
- Financial performance of the school estate
- Accessibility of School Estate.
Core Facts are collected and published by the Scottish Government.
The latest Core Facts statistics are available to download from the Scottish Government website.
