The Office for Local Government


The Office for Local Government (Oflog) was launched in July 2023 with a vision to provide authoritative and accessible data and analysis about local government performance and support its improvement. Its strategic objectives include empower citizens with information about their local authority; and increasing both local and central government understanding of local authority performance.


This inquiry will explore the role and remit of Oflog and how intends to fulfil its objectives. This includes: how it will work in partnership with local authorities; what degree of independence it will have from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) and how it can provide meaningful and effective data which aids local authority service delivery, without being an additional resource pressure.

This inquiry is no longer accepting evidence

The deadline for submissions was Tuesday 23 January 2024.
