Commission for the Compact invites tenders for baseline survey

Initial study will gauge the Compact's impact inside and outside Government

The Commission for the Compact has opened the tendering process for its first survey to gauge awareness of the agreement across government.

The survey, which will be carried out between July 2009 and January 2010, then annually, will measure awareness, knowledge, use and understanding of the Compact in central government departments and non-departmental government bodies.

The inaugural survey will set baseline figures, while subsequent years will measure performance and help the commission to set an agenda for future work with the Government and quangos.

Initial findings will be presented during this year's Compact Week, which starts on 2 November. The full results of the survey will then be published in February 2010.

Sir Bert Massie, Commissioner for the Compact, said: "The study will indicate how far the Compact is embedded within government and non-departmental government bodies and help us focus our future efforts where there may be a lack of awareness and understanding."

A complementary baseline study will also be undertaken this summer by Compact Voice. It will examine how the Compact is working locally.
