The Local Government Act (2000) stipulated that each local authority should have a scrutiny function to ensure that there was a checks and balances mechanism for all decisions made by the Executive Board.
Following the implementation of a new constitution for AGMA, it was decided that a similar mechanism should be established in order to foremost scrutinise decisions made at this sub-regional level.
Further to the establishment of the GM Combined Authority the scrutiny remit has evolved to cover the functions of the GMCA, AGMA and TfGMC (Transport for Greater Manchester Committee).
The Protocol for Scrutiny Arrangements taken from the GMCA Operating Agreement can be found in the related documents section of this page.
