  • 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
