The services are certainly helping people – but you don't need a 'programme'. Authorities can use any standard means to manage these contracts – there is nothing special about them. NI412 is pointless whereas NI141 is well structured. Neither are essential measures.
Why does this idea matter?
Because loosing the programme mentality will help mainstream the services and will reduce administrative costs. The isea suggests discontinuing the National Indicators 141 and 142.
