HMCPSI: Business Plan 2020-21

HMCPSI has today published its Business Plan for 2020-21, setting out the key areas of work that the Inspectorate expects to undertake and giving some background on why they are priorities.

The purpose of HMCPSI is to inspect the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) and to produce reports that provide independently assessed evidence on performance that allows others to hold the two services to account. The reports are also intended to encourage performance improvements by the CPS and SFO.

This plan sets out the inspections that HMCPSI plans to carry out and highlights some inspection that has recently started.

To develop the plan for 2020-21, we sought feedback from our stakeholders. Consultation on a list of potential inspection topics took place during the fourth quarter of 2019-20 and we engaged with those we inspect who sit on our stakeholder advisory board. Although we are independent, we give weight to the views of our stakeholders and, as far as possible, incorporate those issues which we consider most in need of addressing when planning our inspection programme.
