History

The SCS chronological series contains the records of the Screening and Costing Staff of the Temporary Council Committee.
Set up as the Screening and Costing Committee (SCC) on 12 October 1951 by the Executive Board of the Temporary Council Committee, this body was tasked with making recommendations on the cost-cutting measures likely to reduce the cost of establishing and maintaining military forces. Its goal, then, was to identify the lowest costs possible in the interests of cost-cutting. Its studies dealt primarily with the cost of the Army and defence (TCC-D/2 and TCC D/4).
On 26 October 1951, the Temporary Council Committee decided that the Screening and Costing Committee would henceforth be referred to as the Screening and Costing Staff (SCS), and that all references to the Screening and Costing Committee in documents would be deemed to refer to the Screening and Costing Staff (TCC-R/6).
The Screening and Costing Staff was disbanded at the same time as the Temporary Council Committee in February 1952.
