To ask the Scottish Government what the key criteria are for Scottish Futures Trust growth accelerator projects.
Answered by: Keith Brown 20 December 2016
The key objective of the Growth Accelerator funding mechanism is the delivery of public sector enabling infrastructure which stimulates private sector investment and the wider economy. The model establishes a payment-by-results approach based on achieving key measures relating to economic, financial and social impacts. These will be determined on a project by project basis, reflecting the project’s key, identifiable outcomes which will be included within the Growth Accelerator agreement.
