The organisational review of the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) was announced by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and STFC in June 2008. The announcement was made in the Government response to the inquiry by the Innovation, Universities, Science and Skills Select Committee into the Science Budget Allocations in the last comprehensive spending review .
The review was conducted as a two stage process, where STFC first prepared a self assessment document against criteria agreed with DIUS. In the second stage, the self assessment document was considered by a Panel of external experts, charged with reaching an independent view on the organisation of STFC.
