The Accounts Commission has a statutory responsibility to specify information that councils must publish about their performance, in the form of statutory performance indicators (SPIs). The information is collected and published locally by each council. The Commission then publishes information about the comparative performance of councils across Scotland.
During 2009, the Accounts Commission agreed a new Direction for the SPIs. This has been a significant change from previous years. The Compendium contains information published annually by councils where there are links to the prepared reports.
