Purpose of committee

‘Overview’ and ‘scrutiny’ are statutory functions of the WMCA.  The committee discharges these responsibilities through oversight of the work of the Mayor, portfolio lead members and the wider WMCA decision making process in order to hold decision makers to account and improve the quality of these decisions.  The committee may make recommendations to the WMCA Board and other committees, call-in decisions for further scrutiny and challenge activity that is either planned, underway or implemented.
