The Department for Transport has welcomed the publication of its Capability Review.

The review recognises that, since the re-creation of the Department in 2002, the leadership team has worked hard to provide stability and a new sense of direction. It also highlights that the Department has a strong evidence base and analytical capability.

Some of the Department's successes are outlined, including the award-winning THINK! road safety campaign and the introduction of Traffic Officers across the strategic road network.

The review also recognises the challenges facing DfT as it looks to the future and the Department today published its response, setting out its key priorities for moving forward. These are:

* Building strong and cohesive leadership

* Effectively delivering today's services and tomorrow's improvements

* Making the right strategic choices

* Sustaining and building capability.

Robert Devereux, DfT's Permanent Secretary, welcomed the report.

"We have come a long way since the Department was created in 2002," he said. "The Capability Review has shown the strengths of our department and set us a challenge to improve still further. We are committed to meeting that challenge." Notes to Editors

1. DfT is one of three departments involved in the fourth tranche of a cross-government programme to assess the capability of departments to meet their future challenges. The reviews are carried out by an external team and they assess the Department's capability in terms of leadership, strategy and delivery.
