The purpose of this study is to analyze local council's inspection of the administration with special reference to Gyeongnam Provincial Council This study has revealed that there are many problems in the local council's inspection. These problems are as following. First, the amount of councillors' demand for the written data is too much. To solve this problem, all data needs to be computerized. Data can be accessed everytime. So, the executive body can minimize inspection data to enhance the effectiveness of administration and to be possible for councillors to collect data without difficulty. Second, every year the period of council's inspection of the administration is within 10 days. Compared to the time given, there are often too many agencies to be inspected. These may lower the effectiveness of council's inspection of the administration. To solve this problem, agencies for inspection should be distributed to the standing committees evenly. Third, there is little professionalism among local councillors. This occurs because of lack of experiences in council activities, background differences, short knowledge of a local administration, and lack of supporting person. It is needed for local councillors to have attaining knowledge of self-governing administration, knowing laws, continuous education, supports in collecting data, and more aids for their assembly activities. Fourth, there is a need to run effective inspection of the administration. It needs some plans to reduce times for field inspections and to focus on only policies for inspection. Fifth, after the inspection, all members of the standing committee may need to participate and to discuss self evaluation to improve and develop better local council's inspection of the administration in the future. Sixth, local council's inspection of the administration is not only to point out the problems of administration works. It is to inspect what policies the executive agency has been doing and how well the chairperson has kept his election promise. Seventh, administrative staffs in the council are not personnel for aiding council activities. What they do is only preparing and aiding for a proceeding. To solve this problem, the right of personnel management in council staffs should be changed from the executive to the council chairman. And the aid system needs to be established so that their aiding ability can be reinforce. Lastly, local council's inspection of the administration is often overlapping with other inspections. We should reform current inspection policy to reduce duplicated inspection.
