  • http://www.swd.gov.hk/doc/annreport0507/en/14_other.html 服務表現監察制度的目的是鼓勵服務營辦者根據機構管治精神,對屬下單位的服務表現承擔更大的責任;按照危機管理的原則,及早識別和跟進服務單位的表現問題;並在監察服務表現上達致成本效益,為社會福利服務提供質素保證。有關的監察措施包括:規定福利機構提交有關基本服務規定、服務質素標準及服務量和服務成效標準的自我評估報告;規定服務營辦者提交服務量及服務成效標準的差異報告;以及派員到選定的服務單位進行評估探訪及實地評估。 The Service Performance Monitoring System (SPMS) of SWD aims to encourage service operators to take greater accountability for the performance of their service units under corporate governance, enable early detection and intervention of problem performance under risk management and achieve cost-effectiveness in service performance monitoring for the provision of high quality welfare services.  The SPMS includes monitoring of self-assessment of Essential Service Requirements, Service Quality Standards, Output and Outcome Standards; self-reporting on variance in the performance of Output Standards and Outcome Standards by service operators; and conducting of review visits and on-site assessment for selected service units by SWD.
