The committee needs to consider:-

 

Do these reports demonstrate that the council is on target to achieve the council’s aims/ priorities?

 

Have resources been targeted appropriately?

 

Are these areas of low performance that the committee feel would benefit from more detailed analysis?

 

Are there any particular areas that the committee want to refer elsewhere?

 

Members will find it helpful to refer to the Council Strategy when considering these reports:
