Financial performance and variance explanations
The Scottish Government has been aligned around the 5 Strategic Objectives that underpin the Purpose and describe a Scotland that is Wealthier and Fairer, Smarter, Healthier, Safer and Stronger and Greener. In order to monitor the progress in these key areas, the Scottish Government was set up in a portfolio structure. Performance by the chief operating decision maker is assessed by portfolio, not by strategic objectives. Major variances greater than £3m are explained in detail within the detailed portfolio outturn statements.

As a result of the First Minister's announcement on 18 May 2016 on the restructuring of the Scottish administration, the portfolio structure has changed. Outturn figures for 2015-16 have been restated.

The detail of the total 2016-17 staff cost expenditure of £7,068m (2015-16: £6,805m) can be viewed within the Remuneration and Staff Report.
