Information requested

Details of all the costs incurred to date by the Social Renewal Advisory Board, a full membership list for any members of the Board, and list of all engagement with members of the Scottish Government, all between the Board’s initiation and the present date.

Response

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance the Scottish Government does not have all the information you have asked for in relation to costs incurred by the Social Renewal Advisory Board (the Board). This is because the Secretariat to the Board was provided by Scottish
Government staff as and when required, there were no daily commissioner fees or expenses and no identifiable costs associated with communications or IT.

The known costs incurred by the Board are £7,309.23 for publishing the report If not now, when? and £3,333 for running a Deep Dive event with young people.

This is therefore a formal notice under section 17(1) of FOISA that the Scottish Government does not have all the information you have requested.

With regards to the full membership list for any members of the Board, and a list of all engagement with members of the Scottish Government, all between the Board’s initiation and the present date. We have provided the information you requested in the Annex.
