Comprehensive Area AssessmentThe new joint inspectorate assessment framework for local services from 2009 CAA is about places and people CAA will give people a snapshot of life in their local area each year CAA will be a catalyst for further improvement in quality of life and local services CAA will provide an independent view of whether people are getting value for money from their local services CAA will be a mechanism for coordinating and rationalising inspection

Key differences from now • Outcome focused, therefore area-based not just institutionally based • More forward-looking • Greater attention to local priorities • Joint assessment judgements by inspectorates, not just an assembly of separate assessments • Joint planning and targeting of inspection with fewer rolling programmes of inspection
Key points in the consultation paper • Fit with other performance frameworks • Relationship between CAA and Government Office / fieldforce role • Engaging with communities and protecting vulnerable people • CAA in two-tier counties and London • Approach to scoring and reporting • Operational approach between inspectorates to reduce administrative impact of inspection / assessment
