Information on the reform of government in Guernsey.
About The Review
The Committee published its first report - The Organisation of States' Affairs on Monday 2nd June 2014.
The States' Review Committee was established in 2012 to review the organisation of States' affairs and to make any recommendations for reform which it considered necessary.
The Committee benefited greatly from written and oral submissions made by a considerable number of people with direct experience of the States and from people experienced in the politics and administration of the other Crown Dependencies. The Committee also studied numerous earlier reports relating to the structure and functions of the States.
States Review Committee - Policy Letters
The States has now debated the States' Review Committee's third Policy Letter [2Mb] containing further recommendations for reform of the machinery of government in Guernsey
This third report [2Mb], which should be read in conjunction with the second report (available below), makes 15 further recommendations for the future organisation of States' affairs which will develop upon the changes, agreed in 2014, when the States debated the Committee's first report into States' reform (also available below).
The third report [2Mb] includes the mandates for the new committees and includes details on where the responsibility for operational functions will sit.
This is the last of the States Review Committee's reports to go to the States for debate. All of the decisions made can be found in the resolutions below. A project team of senior civil servants is now working on implementing these changes for 1st May 2016.
