Practice guide 11: Engaging with council officers and the executive

Posted on 05/04/2014 by Ed Hammond. Tags: ,

A guide to engaging with council officers and the executive.

This guide is about working with council officers and the council’s executive. It should be read in conjunction with Guide 9 on engaging with partners, and Guide 8 on sources of corporate information.

It focuses on scrutiny’s relationship with senior officers (ie Chief Officers) rather than frontline officers (although the latter are discussed briefly).
