CfGS is pleased to announce the introduction of the Excellence in Governance and Scrutiny category in The MJ Awards 2016.
The MJ Awards have been running since 2004 and were established to celebrate innovation and excellence in local government. This new category provides and excellent opportunity to highlight the value that effective scrutiny and accountability brings as well as featuring the skills, knowledge and expertise of those doing the work.
The Awards will be looking for entries that go beyond simple compliance with legal rules and focus on those that have taken aspirational approach to decision-making that is underpinned by a commitment to local democracy and insight from partners and communities.
Instead of running the Good Scrutiny Awards in 2016, CfGS will use it resources to promote this new category at the MJ Award as it provides a better national platform to showcase the role that good governance and scrutiny can play in local decision making.
