The Policy Project facilitates the policy community to:

  • Identify and share good practice
  • Build collective ownership of the policy system, and a programme of improvement activities
  • Encourage and facilitate collective approaches to improving performance or policy capability where it makes sense
  • Co-develop new products, tools and resources to improve the performance of the policy function and quality of policy advice across government.

Our work programme focuses on building a high performing policy system that supports and enables good government decision making.  It is co-developed with policy practitioners from across government and championed by the Tier 2 Policy Leaders Network (deputy chief executives with policy responsibilities).  The programme is jointly funded by government agencies with significant policy functions.

The direction of travel for the Policy Project is set out in the foundation report The Policy Project Narrative and Direction of Travel (362KB PDF).  You can also read more about how and why the policy system can be improved by collective action
