Enforcement, sanctions and monitoring

There will be no new burdens for businesses, local government or the third sector generated by these regulations in regards to enforcement, sanctions or monitoring.

The Scottish Government has established the independent Scottish Commission on Social Security (SCoSS) who have provided independent scrutiny of the SCP regulations. The Scottish Government will publish a response to the report and each recommendation on 8 September.

The Social Security (Scotland) Act 2018 places a duty on the Scottish Ministers to report annually to the Scottish Parliament on the performance of the Scottish Social Security System during the previous financial year. The report is to describe what the Scottish Ministers have done in that year to meet the expectations on them set out in the Charter.

We have established a stakeholder take-up reference group. This group comprises key individuals and organisations representing academic, third-sector, and local authority interests. It is designed so that members can bring their experience, expertise, and extensive networks to bear in supporting the implementation and monitoring of the first Benefit Take-up Strategy, as well as feeding into the development of the second and subsequent strategies.

We have also committed to reviewing the SCP during the course of the next TCPDP (2022-2026) and continue to work closely with stakeholders, and people with experience of benefits, to ensure that support is targeted on those families that need it most.
