Review bodies’ research
The secretariat teams within the Office of Manpower Economics (OME) regularly commission specific research projects on behalf of the individual review bodies they support:
Our Research and Analysis Group (RAG) is responsible for coordination and strategic oversight of OME’s analytical work. This includes commissioning cross-cutting research into remuneration, labour markets and other matters of relevance to public sector workforce policy.
RAG is led by OME’s chief economist and Deputy Director, Mark Franks. It has 3 members with responsibility for:
- improving the evidence and insight available on public sector workforce matters, including through the analysis of labour market data and drawing on external knowledge and expertise
- working with review bodies and their secretariats to improve the evidence, and analysis of that evidence, available to them
- Effective management of the research budget in order to deliver high-quality and relevant research and achieve value for money
- supporting the development of the skills and knowledge base in OME on analytical issues
