star this property answer text <p>The performance of all CRCs is robustly managed by the department and we will not hesitate to take action if standards fall short. Contract Management teams rigorously monitor performance across all CRCs. Where poor performance has been identified; relevant contractual levers are applied including service credits and performance improvement plans to drive up the performance standards as required. As of July 2018, there were 35 specific improvement plans in place across 15 of the CRCs and covering 10 service metrics.</p><p> </p><p>On 16 May 2019 the Government made an announcement by setting out plans for the future of probation in England and Wales. From spring 2021, our reforms will see a stronger role for the National Probation Service in managing all offenders, greater voluntary sector involvement in rehabilitation, and the private sector leading where it has specialist experience and can support innovation.</p> more like this

Penalties have not been applied where we have agreed that factors out of the control of the CRC have led to the under-performance, or where a recalculation has shown that penalties should not have been triggered. On relevant occasions where it has been considered appropriate not to apply the penalties, we have sought to agree a reinvestment of the value of the penalty back into the delivery of services.</p><p>Contract Management Teams continue to closely monitor and robustly manage CRCs to ensure that they fulfil their contractual commitments and deliver value-for-money for the taxpayer.</p>
