Public bodies and organisations in Scotland

Public bodies and organisations in Scotland play an important role in the delivery of public services in Scotland, making a significant contribution to delivery of the Scottish Government's national outcomes and objectives set out in the National Performance Framework .

Public bodies deliver the priorities of Ministers, or the Parliament, through promotion, delivery, funding and scrutiny of services or by providing impartial, expert advice to Ministers, the Parliament, the public and those who deliver public services. They have the specialist knowledge and skills to focus on specific issues.
