The definitions provided in the Investment and Performance Board paper of August 2013 are recommended for use in the commissioning of new GLA projects.

However, projects in delivery before the start of the Mayoral term may already be legally contracted to deliver against outputs with slightly different definitions. In addition, European funded projects (through ESF or ERDF) have set employment outcome definitions which they are required to report against.
