Commission meetings

Commission meeting

We meet monthly and in public and we welcome visitors. We also have two committees which meet in private.

You don’t have to be there for the whole meeting and can come in at any time. We ask visitors to respect the conduct of business and not cause any disruption such as trying to talk to Commission members, applauding or displaying banners.

Format of meetings

We want to strike the right balance between being open about the way we make decisions, and ensuring that Commission members are able to have candid and robust discussions about sensitive matters.

The Commission may decide, under paragraph 16 of our Standing Orders, to hold all or part of a meeting in private. The agenda for each meeting sets out the items which it's proposed should be considered in private and the reasons why, and the Commission will make a decision about these items at the start of the meeting.

When any business is considered in private, the minutes will record the nature of the business considered and any decisions reached. 

 

We are currently taking a hybrid approach to Commission meetings, with some members in the office and some dialling in virtually. Our next meeting takes place on 12 May 2022. If you would like to observe this meeting, please contact info@audit-scotland.gov.uk.

Meetings are also recorded and saved for two years after the meeting date. They can be obtained on request from info@audit-scotland.gov.uk.

Next meeting: Accounts Commission meeting 11 August 2022

Papers will usually appear here at least three days before the meeting date.
