Programme for Government and Budget

While it will be for an incoming Executive to set out its priorities, the former Executive had agreed to develop a Programme for Government (PfG) focused on achieving outcomes of societal wellbeing.

The draft Programme subsequently prepared by the Executive was consulted on extensively during 2016. At its centre was a framework of outcomes designed to target those things that will make real improvements to people’s quality of life.

Following consultation on the draft PfG and an associated Equality Impact Assessment, officials have continued to develop the PfG framework to make it as responsive as possible to the needs of people and the things they identified as necessary for societal wellbeing.

A copy of the updated draft framework is available via the link below:

The framework was used to provide the context for the Budgetary Outlook document published by the Department of Finance on 18 December 2017, a copy of which can be accessed via the following link:
