5 Amber – 4 of which exceeded the March 08 target set but are still below comparators but should be achieved by September 08 if progress is maintained
2 Red – still in need of significant improvement
Simon Westwood - Mouchel
Executive Summary

Achieving targets set and agreed for March 2009 will show good performance against comparators
Simon Westwood - Mouchel
