The Scrutiny Panels
Use of Resources Scrutiny Panel
The Use of Resources Scrutiny Panel looks at areas such as policy development, performance and project management, capital programme, business change and human resources. This may involve looking at the work of the council in these areas, and also the work of partner agencies and organisations. The panel may offer advice or make recommendations on policy development to the cabinet or council, or look at decisions of the cabinet and, if appropriate, ask them to reconsider. They may also make recommendations to partner agencies in certain circumstances.
In the last Municipal Year,the panel has looked and commented on the cabinet's draft budget; Combined Authority; the Corporate Asset and Facilities Management transformation programme; asbestos management and annual safety report.
For the current list of issues we have discussed see scrutiny reviews.
We usually meet every month. To see what we’ll be discussing at our next meeting and when it is view the Calendar.
