2 STAFF AND ACCOMMODATION
The staff of the Inspectorate currently consists of the Chief Inspector, a Principal Legal Inspector, a Legal Inspector, a Management Inspector and a Personal Assistant. Two of these are part time workers.
During the course of the year a Statistician left the Inspectorate as did the Legal Inspector. The Legal Inspector was replaced and additional Ad Hoc Legal Inspectors were used to carry out legal research and compliance audits particularly in relation to the thematic work. This adds considerable flexibility to the staffing arrangements and is a valuable additional resource.
In May of 2007 the Inspectorate moved to new premises at Legal House, Gorbals Street, Glasgow. The Glasgow location puts the Inspectorate within easy travelling distance of over half the Procurator Fiscal Offices in Scotland and, given the length of the lease, provides some stability for the future.
