Like other Scottish public bodies, the General Register Office for Scotland (GROS) operates within the National Performance Framework set by Scottish Ministers. The Framework (see http://www.scotland.gov.uk/About/purposestratobjs) underpins delivery of the Scottish Government’s Purpose which is:-
“To focus government and public services on creating a more successful country, with opportunities for all of Scotland to flourish, through increasing sustainable economic growth.”
The achievement of that objective depends on people – and GROS is the main source of information on the population of Scotland.
Our Strategic Objectives for 2009-12 link the National Outcomes and Purpose Targets, which are designed to achieve the Government’s Purpose, with the work of every part of GROS and provide a line of sight from the National Performance Framework to the job descriptions of individual GROS staff, through the Key Business Objectives and Operational Objectives which underlie the Strategic Objectives.
