Scrutiny is a process that ensures that decisions taken by the Council and its partners reflect the opinions, wishes and priorities of Manchester Residents. Scrutiny is carried out by elected members, ie, councillors, who understand and promote the concerns of the local residents who elected them. It is a process that looks to connect decision makers to local residents and involve local residents directly wherever possible.
The scrutiny committees do not make decisions, but tries to influence those who do by considering the major issues affecting the city and making recommendations about how services can be improved.
