In April 2007, the Government commissioned seven inspectorates, led by the Audit Commission, to jointly develop and test an outcome-forced, proportionate, risk-based system of assessment and inspection for local services, called the Comprehensive Area Assessment (CAA).
The CAA replaced the previous assessment regime for local authorities, the Comprehensive Performance Assessment (CAP), from 1 April 2009.
CAA will bring together assessments of performance across each local area and focus more on the delivery of outcomes rather than the performance of individual institutions.
CAA, is a new way of assessing local public services in England. It examines how well councils are working together with other public bodies to meet the needs of the people they service.
Yearly assessments will provide an annual snapshot of quality of life int he area.
