S5W-22404: Tavish Scott (Shetland Islands)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 28 March 2019

To ask the Scottish Government whether it will place in the Scottish Parliament Information Centre (SPICe) a copy of all contingency risk planning documents sent and received from non-departmental public bodies.

Answered by: Derek Mackay 18 April 2019

Non-departmental public bodies are required to operate within the terms of the Scottish Public Finance Manual which sets out specific arrangements for financial control, internal and external and internal audit arrangements and effective risk management procedures. Accountable Officers of non-departmental public bodies are responsible for implementing effective risk management processes within their organisation. The Scottish Government has no plans to place copies of contingency risk planning documents in the Scottish Parliament Information Centre (SPICe) sent and received from non-departmental public bodies.
