  • Data Unit LogoWe have published our first monitoring report on our compliance with our Welsh Language Standards.

    From 25 January 2017, the Data Unit has committed to comply with the Welsh Language Standards, as set out by the Welsh Government under Section 44 of the Welsh Language (Wales) Measure 2011. These standards set clear expectations on us to provide services in Welsh to our customers, and to promote the use of the Welsh language through all the services.

    Our annual monitoring report provides information on our compliance, any action that we’ve undertaken, as well as providing details of any complaints relating to our compliance with the Welsh Language Standards. We’re very proud to say that we received no complaints in 2016-17.

  • PAM GuidanceWe have recently published the 2017-18 Public Accountability Measures (PAMs) guidance.

    This dataset has been developed by the Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA) led Task and Finish group, in consultation with local authorities, and seeks to provide a clear and simple overview of local government performance.

    The guidance includes detailed definitions for each measure, including comprehensive guidance for those measures we will collect directly from local authorities. We have also included information about how each of the PAMs may help local authorities demonstrate how they are contributing to the seven well-being goals.

    Enquiries relating to the PAMs or the guidance should be sent to pienquiries@dataunitwales.gov.uk
