Answered by: Jeane Freeman 2 October 2018
I refer the member to the answer to question S5W-18974 on 2 October 2018. All answers to written parliamentary questions are available on the Parliament’s website, the search facility for which can be found at http://www.parliament.scot/parliamentarybusiness/28877.aspx
The timing of financial reporting by individual Integration Authorities is aligned to the local release of information in to the public domain and associated with Board Meetings which generally take place every few months. For practical reasons there is currently no intention to increase the frequency of reporting from quarterly to monthly.
