To ask the Scottish Government how it tracks its policy announcements and associated deadlines; what management system it has for this, and whether it will make this information public in a transparent and accessible format.
Answered by: Derek Mackay 18 April 2019
The annual Programme for Government lays out the Government’s policy and legislative agenda, the aim of which is to work towards achieving the Outcomes in the National Performance Framework (NPF).
Other policy announcements are made in Parliament and/or through the Scottish Government website to ensure accessibility and transparency. Delivery is monitored through embedded business management and monitoring processes.
The Government reports annually on spending, and a range of information including policy specific plans and progress reports is published at www.gov.scot .
Information on Scotland’s progress on the NPF can be accessed at www.nationalperformance.gov.scot.
