What is Scrutiny Committee?

Scrutiny Committee is an opportunity for the student body, that all of the Elected officers represent, to scrutinise their work. To see how they have been doing with their projects and assess the work they have done. Elected officers have to write up what they have been doing and the manifesto points they have completed, they will then meet with a panel of elected students, Scrutiny Committee Members, who ask them questions on their work and assess their progress.

Scurtiny Committee works as a sub-committee of Student Senate. Meaning Senate can focus on making and amending policy. 10 students are required for Scrutiny Committee. 

You can see the work of the full-time officers here just click on each of them and you'll be able to see their progress, as well as individually below. The minutes from the meeting can be found below. For 2018/2019 Scrutiny Committee the Campaign Officers are split into 'Group A' and 'Group B'.
