8 Conclusion |
71. This Report is unusual in covering two years
of OSI activity and we intend to return to the regular annual
pattern of scrutiny and reporting. It is also unusual in its focus
on the restructuring of the OSI, which was an unexpected development
in this scrutiny period, which was also marked by the arrival
of a new Science Minister. There are likely to be further significant
developments which will affect the OSI in the coming year, including
the outcome of the CSR and the results of the Sainsbury review.
Indeed one question often speculated about is how long the OSI
will continue in its current form. We look forward to considering
developments in these and other areas in our report on the work
of the OSI in 2007.
