The Accounts Commission has the statutory power to specify information that councils must publish about their performance, in the form of statutory performance indicators (SPIs). Each council collects and publishes its information.
Until 2012/13, the Commission published information about the comparative performance of councils across Scotland. The information, from 2001/02 to 2012/13, is still available under Councils and Services.
The Commission now has a focus on how effectively councils are reporting performance information to the public. It produces an annual Direction to councils about public performance reporting.
To view the current performance information and comparator information about the performance of councils, visit the Improvement Service’s Local Government Benchmarking Framework.
