Performance Monitoring Panel Task Groups

Sometimes a panel will decide to appoint a task group to undertake the specific piece of work.

Task group meetings are made up of Councillors from one of the main scrutiny panels. There are usually only up to five Councillors on a task group. Task group meetings are less formal and, unless engaging in public consultation for the purposes of the review, are rarely open to the press and public.

At the end of a review, the task group will report its findings to a main scrutiny panel who will then decide whether to make recommendations to Cabinet or Council. Sometimes, where an issue covers both performance and policy, a joint task group will be set up with membership being split between members of both panels. The final report is submitted to both of the panels prior to recommendations going forward to Cabinet or Council.

Task groups of the Performance Monitoring Panel

The panels set their own work programmes. This is a rolling process with issues being suggested throughout the year, added to the work programme where appropriate, and timescales agreed.

There are currently no task groups underway.
