The Mayor


In response to Question no 2018/5131 you wrote that a full evaluation of pilots is not always appropriate and in this case the service delivery was assessed and reviewed on a quarterly basis.  However, in light of this and your several legal undertakings in paragraph 4 of the Grant Agreement ("MOPAC will conduct an evaluation of the app and supporting service. Relevant data will be shared between MOPAC and the recipient.  An evaluation plan will be shared with the recipient”) and the separate legal undertaking in paragraph 5 for the recipient to report to MOPAC at quarterly meetings,

(i)              Did you share an evaluation plan with the recipient; 

(ii)             Did you share data with the recipient, and 

(iii)           Did you fulfil your legal obligation to evaluate the app and service?

In answer to your specific questions - yes.  An evaluation plan was shared with the grant recipient and data shared and reviewed as part of the quarterly monitoring process through which service delivery and the use of the app, as developed for our specific requirements for hate crime reporting, were assessed. The MPS conducted a separate assessment of the app and its wider usage for reporting all crime, which I believe you have also seen.
