“The Scottish Ministers” includes Executive Agencies. Accordingly, Executive Agencies will be specified persons in relation to the debt and fraud powers, even though they are not listed by name in the Schedules. At the time of this consultation, the Scottish Public Pensions Agency, the Student Awards Agency for Scotland and the Scottish Social Security Agency wish to make use of these powers.
A person providing services to a specified person
In recognition of the fact that public services are also delivered by third parties who may hold key information which public authorities need, or who may need to access key information held by public authorities, bodies that provide services to a public authority that is specified in the Schedules are covered by the addition of a general description to the Schedules. Such bodies will not need to be listed individually by name. They can only use the data sharing powers in connection with the functions they exercise when providing services to a specified public authority.
