In 2017, the SPA adopted a revised Governance Framework whereby all significant decisions that require the approval of the SPA will now be taken by the full Board of publically-appointed authority members. Board meetings will therefore be more frequent and continue to be held in public and broadcast via livestream.
As a result, the primary role of Committees will change from delegated decision-making forums to primarily supporting the Board by undertaking assessments of matters, providing advice and assurance and making recommendations to assist the Board in its decision-making. Committees will continue to have a focus on people, finance, audit and the SPA’s statutory functions such as complaints however the addition of a Policing Committee will enhance overall Board oversight of Police Scotland.
Public papers for Board and committees can be found in this section of the website.
