About the Consultation

The Scottish Fiscal Commission has sought views on how it operates from a number of stakeholders, both in the lead up to its establishment and since becoming statutory on 1 April 2017; these discussions have fed in to the development of the draft Corporate Plan being consulted on now.

We have also consulted the Scottish Government’s Equalities Unit on how the Commission ensures it takes proper account of the needs of individuals with protected characteristics within its operation and in the Corporate Plan.

In addition to this written consultation, we will continue to work with our stakeholders while finalising our Corporate Plan.

Consultation Questions 

  1. Do you have any views on our mission and the principles for our operation set out in the Corporate Plan? 
  2. Do you have any views on the Strategic Objectives and key activities to deliver these? 
  3. Is there anything you would like to see added to or removed from the strategic objectives and key activities? 
  4. What measures would you like to see in the Plan to assess our performance against our objectives? 
  5. Are there any other aspects of the Plan you would like to comment on?

What Happens Next?

Once the consultation has closed we will analyse the responses and consider amendments to the draft plan before it is finalised and published. We will also be working to develop further our approach to measuring our performance and the outcome of this work will be published alongside our Corporate Plan in due course.
