The Central Policy Secretariat (CPS) helps staff across the GSS to work together with senior leaders to achieve shared priorities.
We provide support to the National Statistician, John Pullinger, and the three Deputy National Statisticians – Jonathan Athow, Heather Savory and Ian Cope – as well as to the top-level GSS committees including the National Statistics Executive Group, the GSS Heads of Profession meetings, and the Inter Administration Committee.
Our responsibilities also include coordinating reviews of statistical policy, managing parliamentary questions, and handling concerns raised with the Authority about official statistics and their use. We are also home to the GSS International and Legal Team.
The team are here to help and will always be happy to hear from you, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
