ACE was glad to host a joint event with the Civil Service Policy Profession and Operational Delivery Profession on how to form ‘deliverable policy’.
The event followed the Public Accounts Committee recommendation that departments should be drawing on the expertise of their ALBs to develop policy, a point which was subsequently incorporated in Cabinet Office's Code of Good Practice for partnerships between departments and ALBs published in February 2017.
Chris Wormald, Permanent Secretary at the Department of Health and Head of the Policy Profession opened the event, followed by Shaun McNally, Chief Executive of Legal Aid Agency and Head of Operational Delivery Profession for Ministry of Justice . There followed a range of interesting case studies in a workshop-style format with Q&A and discussion. Martin Jones shared his insights moving from his previous role as Head of Sentencing Policy at the Ministry of Justice to his current role as CEO of the Parole Board. Secondly, Nick-Joicey, Director-General at DEFRA reflected on the policy implications of Brexit in his department and ALB engagement. Lastly we heard from Lesley Titcomb, CEO of the Pensions Regulator.
Attendees consisted of individuals from across policy-making, ALBs and wider operational delivery and in a workshop -format there with an opportunity to learn from each other's experiences.View Event Summary
