Policy work

Consultations and inquiries

The wide range of subjects that we investigate across many different sectors provides a unique perspective on the delivery of public services in Scotland. One of the ways in which we seek to share the learning from the investigations is through our responses to inquiries and consultations undertaken by the Parliament and Government.
