Significant Work Completed During 2010/11

Performance monitoring of CRIs

  • Built on work and analysis developed in 2010, the Treasury developed a more detailed and comprehensive set of performance information on the entities that are monitored in the 2011 Annual Portfolio Report, specifically financial performance measures relating to CRIs.

Ministry of Science and Innovation (MSI)

  • The Taskforce Review of CRIs saw the development of Statements of Core Purpose for each CRI and a new focus to the Statements of Corporate Intent. COMU worked with MSI on the development of the new accountability documents and managed the transition of primary monitoring responsibilities from COMU to MSI.
