Scrutiny Committee is an opportunity for the student body to scrutinise the work of the Elected Officers. This includes reviewing their progress and seeing how they are advancing with ongoing projects, as well as offering suggestions and encouragement. Elected Officers are expected to publish what they have been doing in their role, and the manifesto points they have completed, for all students to see. They then meet with a panel of elected students, Scrutiny Committee Members, who ask them questions on their work and assess their progress.
Scrutiny Committee works as a sub-committee of Student Senate, which means Student Senate can focus on making and amending policy. There are ten students required for Scrutiny Committee, who are elected in the Autumn Elections.

How does Scrutiny work?
Scrutiny Committee is responsible for holding your elected officers to account. Before a meeting, Scrutiny Committee members will recieve the Officers' project trackers, which act as a report. From these trackers they will form a series of questions they want to ask the Officers at the meeting
At the meeting the elected Officers will take it in turns to answer their questions from the committee and explain further what they have been working on. Scrutiny Committee will also provide direction and support to the officers where necessary
