Budget management and delegated authority

48. Each year the Sponsor Team will send the Board a Budget Allocation and Monitoring letter, notifying SCoSS of the budget provision, any related matters and details of the budget monitoring information required. SCoSS will comply with the format and timing of the monitoring information requested and with any requests for further information.

49. SCoSS’s specific delegated financial authorities – as agreed in consultation between the Board and the Scottish Ministers – are set out in Annexe A. The Board will obtain the prior written approval from sponsors and SG Finance before entering into any undertaking to incur any expenditure that falls outside these delegations, and before incurring expenditure for any purpose that is or might be considered novel, contentious or repercussive or which has or could have significant future cost implications.
