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 give advance notice to attend our meetings but it will help us make sure you get a seat if you can phone ahead on 0131 625 1500.

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. 

The Commission is currently considering with our partner Audit Scotland the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on our work programme. For now, we have cancelled our next Commission meeting scheduled for 9 April.

Next meeting: Accounts Commission meeting 7 May 2020
