SFC has a framework for assurance and accountability that enables us to have confidence that we are delivering against our statutory duties and Scottish Government’s expectations as set out in the Framework Document and Letters of Guidance from Ministers. It also enables us to understand in more detail what colleges and universities deliver for the almost £2 billion funding that we distribute to them.

The assurance and accountability framework includes our expectations of colleges and universities around:

Our engagement with colleges and universities is a vital part of how we get assurance and understand the issues, challenges and opportunities for them. We have a team of Institutional Engagement and Outcome Agreements lead contacts who each work with a portfolio of colleges and universities to ensure that we have a depth of knowledge about each institution, as well as providing a dedicated point of contact for each institution.
