Since 2002, Sportscotland has contracted with suitably qualified service providers a series of audits across a range of business disciplines. The aim of these audits is 2-fold:
1. To provide the SGB with a report that includes a series of recommendations to support and continually improve its governance and effectiveness, and
2. To ensure that the governance and financial accounting of partner organisations is appropriate to safeguard the investment of public money.
These audits are termed development audits and the subsequent development audit report is a tool to be used by the SGB and evidence for Sportscotland that demonstrates the effectiveness of the SGB.
