Section 22 reports
Section 22 reports are prepared by the Auditor General if any specific concerns or issues have been raised in the audit of one of the public bodies for which he is responsible. This is done under Section 22 of the Public Finance and Accountability (Scotland) Act 2000.
The issues covered by Section 22 reports will depend on what the auditor has highlighted in their audit, but they could include areas such as financial management or governance.
