Use of results alignment rating
For the 2018–21 NLTP, the results alignment rating will be used by the Transport Agency to assess the significance of a problem, issue or opportunity relative to desired results set out in the Government Policy Statement.
For road maintenance the rating assessment will also assess the proposed customer levels of service against those set out in the ONRC framework.
What the ratings mean:
- A medium results alignment rating would indicate a network managed to largely meet appropriate customer levels of service.
- A medium rather than a high results alignment rating should not be viewed as having ‘negative’ management connotations.
- A high results alignment means there is a significant gap in maintenance to meet customer levels of service for the road classification and an enhanced maintenance programme (in the short term) is required to get the programme on track.
The rating assessment is not an indication of how well a programme is being optimised and delivered by an organisation; it is about how well the proposal is delivering the right outcomes.
