GSR members must act as ambassadors for GSR. They must operate as knowledge brokers within Government, maintain effective links with the external research community, other analytical professions and policy and delivery colleagues and promote the effective use of research and analysis , including international evidence, within government.
GSR members must influence and effectively use external research programmes and, where possible, make research data available to other researchers.
GSR members must constructively challenge the formulation of policy questions and identify key areas and issues of the future; they should look beyond departmental boundaries to cross government issues.
GSR members need to understand the contribution of other analytical professions and be able to signpost colleagues to sources of relevant knowledge, both in terms of research output and other analysts; they should be effective communicators.
