Scrutiny

The Council's scrutiny function supports the Council's commitment to transparency and good governance. It provides an independent cross-party check & challenge on decision-makers.

The Council has four Select Committees whose role is to help improve outcomes for Buckinghamshire's residents and hold decision-makers to public account. Each Select Committee has different areas of responsibility and each conducts its work through conducting inquiries with evidence-based recommendations for change, as well as meeting regularly in public to hold decision-makers to account.

Typically at least one Cabinet Member will undergo a 'critical friend' questioning on issues at the committee meetings held in public.

Details of the current scrutiny inquiry and work programme are detailed at each Cabinet Meeting.
