Oversight of the CSGN initiative is provided by the CSGN Programme Committee (CSGN PC).

The CSGN PC works to ensure progress is in line with Ministers’ ambitions, as expressed through the CSGN Vision, the National Planning Framework and other relevant plans, policies and strategies.

The detailed remit of the CSGN PC is to:

  • Identify strategic opportunities where cross-cutting links can be drawn between the CSGN programme and other Government plans, programmes and initiatives to achieve greater progress with delivery.
  • Oversee and monitor (on behalf of Ministers) progress with the development and delivery of the CSGN programme, identifying priorities and setting clear objectives for where and how the efforts of Government, the CSGN Trust and partners should be focused.
  • Coordinate Scottish Government financial and other support for and input to the CSGN programme, in particular oversight of the priorities for grant support for the CSGN Trust.
