Dear Dame Meg,

I wanted to write in my role as Head of the Government Analysis Function regarding your Committee’s report and the subsequent Government response on Use of evaluation and modelling in government. For recommendation 5b, we gave a target implementation date of summer 2022. This was in error: it should have said summer 2023. We have revised this target implementation date in the latest progress update due to your Committee also.

Please do let me know if any questions.

Yours sincerely,
Professor Sir Ian Diamond
