Providing guidance based on CfPS’s experience supporting nine areas in England and Wales in 2014/15 on scrutiny’s contribution when councils are undergoing transformation, commissioning or undertaking another major change to services. 

Firstly, this report looks at transformation in general – how councils embark on major change and what contribution scrutiny members can make to those plans, as they are designed and delivered. Secondly, it looks specifically at plans for more commissioning. The act of commissioning presents a particular accountability and governance challenge.
