Central Science Laboratory: Targets

Baroness Elles asked Her Majesty's Government:

Lord Lucas: The Central Science Laboratory is relocating to a new purpose built laboratory in York during 1996-97 with the subsequent closure of a number of existing sites. This will result in exceptional one-off costs and disruption which my right honourable friend the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food has taken into account in setting the following demanding but realistic strategic targets for 1996-97: Financial 94 per cent. recovery of full costs after allowing for relocation costs. To comply with budgetary controls resulting from the Public Expenditure Survey and the Supply Estimates. Efficiency 1 per cent. improvement in utilisation of productive time. To achieve a ratio of 54 per cent. overheads to total costs by 31st March 1997. Service Delivery At least 90 per cent. of work completed to time and within budget. Achieve a mean score of 3 on a scale of 0 to 5 for the assessment of customer satisfaction using the established methodology.
