Building Standards best value & performance

Providing a quick response to Building Warrant applications is a key requirement for our customers but overall performance is set within a wider context.

Performance Framework

To provide a consistent measure of performance of verifiers across Scotland a Performance Framework (PF) was developed jointly by the Scottish Government and Local Authority Building Standards Scotland (LABSS).

The PF has been reviewed by the Scottish Government and the current version has 7 Key Performance Outcomes.

Quarterly performance reports

As noted above we, as the Verifier appointed by the Scottish Government for Perth & Kinross, submit a quarterly report detailing our performance against the key outcomes. A summary of our most recent results are included in this icon Building Standards Performance Report for Q1 of 2018/19 [79Kb].

Customer Charter standards

Included in the KPO's is a requirement for us to publish a icon Customer charter [209Kb] which includes a number of in-house service standards. Our icon In-house performance report [71Kb] against these standards is routinely monitored. 

Customer surveys

Feedback on how you feel we have performed is very important and we would encourage you to complete this brief Building Standards customer survey. The survey is totally anonymous although you can ask for feedback if you prefer.

Some of you may also participate in the national survey run by the Scottish Government which is considerably more detailed. The icon 2017 National Survey Report [174Kb] summarises the findings and compares our performance against the Scottish average.

Best value and continuous improvement

Our icon Building Standards Annual Performance Report [2Mb] explains our roles and responsibilities, both legislatively and in performance terms. It also outlines improvement actions we intend implementing and is updated quarterly in line with the submission of the performance reports.
