Public service reform, scrutiny and inspection: Where to next?
Tue 4 April 2017, 09:30 – 14:00 CDT
Scrutiny and inspection are viewed as key drivers for stimulating improvement and ensuring accountability within public services. The public service reform agenda in Scotland is requiring services to collaborate more deeply, to rethink ways of working and roles and responsibilities which are not easily captured by traditional models of scrutiny and inspection. Therefore, we need to rethink how we inspect and scrutinise our public services.
This seminar draws together a range of key stakeholders to explore and reflect on the implications for the future of scrutiny and inspection in Scotland. This seminar is structured around a number of short inputs from leading thinkers, policy-makers and practitioners to stimulate discussion about how we might construct inspection and scrutiny in Scotland that meets the demands of an ever more integrated and complex set of public services.
A discussion paper will be circulated in advance of the seminar and the thinking generated will be used to develop a What Works Scotland position paper on this important and challenging issue.
