Heads of Analysis group
For government as a whole, the heads of each analytical profession, including science and engineering, are brought together in the Heads of Analysis (HoA) group. HoA has no executive powers, but it champions and oversees the professional supply of evidence and analytical advice to the Government. It recommends changes and highlights good practice on integrating the evidence base and improving its exploitation.
HoA is currently chaired by the Permanent Secretary to the Treasury and includes the government-wide heads of the analytical professions: science and engineering; economics; social research; statistics; and operational research. The GCSA is a member of the HoA.
