Scrutiny and work programming, by Natalie Rotherham

This paper provides an update, and summary, of material on scrutiny work programming produced by the Centre for Governance & Scrutiny (CfGS) in 2020. While that material sets out some detailed steps for councils to follow in formulating and delivering their work programmes, this document is intended to act as a shorter, accessible introduction to some of the key principles underpinning effective work programming.
