With a new Government in place, Report Card 2012 varies from previous editions and has been reformulated to accommodate commitments from the new Programme for Government. Unlike previous editions, which examined the implementation of key promises throughout one calendar year, Report Card 2012 assesses progress from March to December 2011. The process itself has not changed; we continue to offer relevant officials an opportunity to provide information on progress and to verify grades with our External Assessment Panel.
