MSPs have launched an inquiry into the Scottish Government’s National Performance Framework, and are calling for views from the public on how policy aims are shaped.

First introduced in 2007, the framework sets out the Government’s ambitions for society in Scotland, and identifies "National Outcomes", seeking to focus Government activity and spending on meeting these.  

Now Holyrood’s Finance and Public Administration Committee has opened a call for views on how National Outcomes shape the Government’s policy aims. The committee is particularly keen to hear from:

  • local government, 
  • the public sector, 
  • business organisations and 
  • the voluntary sector.

Committee convener Kenneth Gibson MSP commented: "The remit for this inquiry is to examine the current structures, processes and cultures that are in place to help deliver the National Outcomes.

"We want to hear from national and local government, businesses and the voluntary sector, as well as individuals, about their first-hand experiences of delivering the National Outcomes, what’s worked well and where improvements can be made."
