                 13   February 2006

3. The Chair reported on the outcomes of each meeting to the next
   Commission meeting and minutes were circulated to all Commissioners.

Method of Operation

4. The Committee plans in advance the work to be undertaken at each of
   its meetings during the calendar year. These plans take into account
   the cycle of key governance events and taking place at certain times of
   the year including the annual pay negotiating remit and the
   consideration of the performance pay element of the salaries of the
   Chief Inspector and the Business Directors.

5. The Committee Agendas regularly include the following items:



     Refining the Reward Strategy
     Moving to Common Terms & Conditions & Job evaluation
     Pensions issues
     Workforce development strategy
     HR Implications of the 2007 and 2008 mergers
     Workforce statistics, including equalities & diversity profile

6. Other ad hoc reports and briefings on key issues are considered as
   appropriate.

7. The Committee’s agendas and supporting papers are private to the
   Commission.

Workforce Reporting

8. The Committee has received regular reports analysing the workforce and
   has welcomed the progressive improvement in the quality of the
   information provided, especially following the ethnicity re-survey. There
   remain areas for improvement, including in relation to the diversity
   breakdown of learning and development and other statistics.

Senior Staff Reward & Performance

9. The Committee’s July meeting considered the performance element of
   the salaries of the Chief Inspector and the Business Directors for the
   year 2004-05. The Chair participated in the Committee’s consideration
   of the Chief Inspector’s performance pay, while the Chief Inspector
   withdrew for this item, and the Chief Inspector attended for the
   consideration of the Business Directors’ pay. The Head of People
   Development advised the Committee on these issues, while the Director
   of Corporate Services did not attend for either of these items.

Conflicts of Interest

10 A number of the issues considered by the Committee related to matters
   where the Chief Inspector, Director of Corporate Services, Head of
   People Development and Commission Secretary had interests as CSCI
   employees. These interests were declared at each meeting, as
   appropriate, and the Committee took the view that generally it was to
   the advantage of the Committee for these officials to attend and
   contribute to the discussions. An exception to this approach was made
   when there was consideration of personal reward and performance
   issues, as identified above at paragraph 9.

Joint Seminar with the Audit Committee

11 In addition to the meetings listed above, the Committee had a joint
   seminar with the Audit Committee (since retitled the Audit & Risk
   Committee) on 13 February 2006 which provided an update of key
   issues relating to the transitions of the Commission’s functions (subject
   to the necessary legislation) to:

      the new Ofsted in April 2007 for children’s services; and,
      a new merged body in April 2008, bringing together CSCI’s adults
       services with the functions of the Healthcare Commission and the
       Mental Health Act Commission.

This Annual Report was prepared by the Head of People Development and
Director of Corporate Services and was endorsed by the Remuneration
Committee members at their meeting on 30 October 2006.
