Consultation process

We wanted to hear your views on our operating plan and budget for 2017/18. Our legislation sets out that we must consult each January, publish responses to the consultation in March, and lay a budget before the Scottish Parliament in April each year. The statute requires that the budget must be reasonably sufficient to cover expenditure. The draft Operating Plan and budget both cover the period 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2018

The consultation closed on Monday 13th March.
