    Excellence in Scrutiny Award supported by the Scottish Government

    The Scottish Government

    This award is aimed at landlords and their tenants who can show excellence in how they have worked collaboratively to analyse and interpret performance information in line with the requirements of the Scottish Social Housing Charter and how this has led to positive outcomes for tenants.

    The award is for landlords who are working in partnership with their tenants to embed scrutiny across a range of service provision. Submissions should therefore focus on how the following criteria have been met using evidence from one or more performance areas which have been scrutinised:

    • How the scrutiny process has or is being developed in partnership with tenants.
    • How scrutiny has achieved improvements in services and delivered good outcomes for tenants.
    • How key challenges have been identified and how these have been overcome.
    • How scrutiny has or is being embedded into performance management arrangements.

    Who is eligible?

    The award is open to all registered social landlords, local authorities and their tenants in Scotland who have developed (or are developing) excellence in their scrutiny activities.

    How to enter & judging

    To nominate you will be asked to complete an on-line submission form.

    This should not exceed a maximum of 800 words structured around the criteria. Other supporting documents such as key reports may also be submitted as appendices but these should be limited to be maximum of two for each of the criteria. The submission will provide the basis for both short-listing and the final decision on the winning entry.

    Judges will look favourably on entries which address more than the minimum number of criteria.

    Be sure to send in your nominations by the closing date: Friday 8 September 2017 at 16:00. Nominations will not be accepted after this date.


    The winner will be announced and the award presented at the CIH Scotland Excellence Awards Dinner on Friday 27 October 2017 at Murrayfield Stadium, Edinburgh.
