It is still possible to submit a response to the CfPS Annual Survey 2011/12. It’s especially important this year for us to get a full and accurate picture of scrutiny nationwide, as new structural arrangements bed down in the health service, policing, education and housing, and we seek to demonstrate to policymakers both nationally and locally the strong role that scrutiny can play in such arrangements. As ever, the survey is also extremely useful to practitioners like yourselves who want to compare and contrast who other people carry out scrutiny in their authorities. At the moment, we have responses from roughly half of all authorities in England and Wales, but for the survey to be reliable and credible we need to bring this figure up well beyond three quarters.

We’d like to take the opportunity to sincerely thank those who have submitted responses so far, and who have taken the time to provide us with detailed information on scrutiny in their authority.
