To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide a breakdown of what programme boards have been established by the fiscal responsibility steering group, and how many times these have met.
Answered by: Derek Mackay 13 April 2017
The Fiscal Responsibility Steering Group oversees the work of the Fiscal Framework Implementation Board (FFIB) and the Finance Capacity and Capability Board (FCCB). FFIB has met 4 times and will meet again later this month. FCCB last met during 2016 and its business wound up and transferred into day to day activity for the Finance and Procurement & Commercial Directorates in developing their future staffing requirements and organisational structures.
