Towards a Wellbeing Framework: From Outcomes to Actions

28 September 2016 - by Connor Daly

Today politicians and stakeholders from the public, private and third sectors will come together to consider how the Northern Ireland Executive can deliver outcomes-based government.


The event will bring together the OECD, the Minister of Finance; the Chair of the Assembly Finance Committee and a host of organisations with a vested interested in the new PfG. In addition, the conference will hear from the Scottish perspective; its government already operating an outcomes-based approach.


From outcomes to actions, how can government work with the third sector to deliver outcomes? How can a slim-lined Executive align its objectives with those of new local ‘super’ councils?


With the new draft Programme for Government framework placing societal wellbeing at the heart of its work, the conference will consider:


  •          What the new framework means for delivering future public services?


  •          What are the Executive’s priorities for change?


  •          What will joined-up policies and services look like?


  •          What mechanisms do we need to hold government to account?


Speakers include:


  • Rolf Alter, Director for Public Governance and Territorial Development Directorate, OECD
  • Máirtín Ó Muilleoir MLA, Minister of Finance
  • Emma Little Pengelly MLA, Chair of the Assembly Finance Committee
  • Professor Carol Tannahill, Chief Social Policy Advisor to the Scottish Government
  • Fraser McKinlay, Director of Performance Audit and Best Value, Audit Scotland
  • Katrina Godfrey, Head of Programme for Government, The Executive Office
