Report: Local government in Scotland Overview 2022 - audit scope

To be published May 2022 by Accounts Commission

In the Local government overview 2022, we will comment on the main socio-demographic and economic issues facing local government and how these have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic; current and new national policy and legislation and how this links to pandemic recovery; and changes in councils' leadership and governance arrangements.

The report will provide an independent assessment and assurance to the public about how effectively Scottish local government is currently performing and responding to the challenges it faces as well as planning for the future. It will also act as a prompt for councillors to help them with their scrutiny role.
