IT systems

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Accounts Commission for Scotland should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Accounts Commission for Scotland,

Can you please let me know which IT systems you are currently used to manage the inspection process.

Yours faithfully,


Ian Metcalfe, Accounts Commission for Scotland

Dear Monika


Thank you for your Freedom of Information request dated 8 March 2017. 
This email is to acknowledge and reply to your request.


The Accounts Commission does not directly employ staff nor does it have
any IT systems and therefore under Section 17 of the Freedom of
Information (Scotland) Act  2002, the Accounts Commission does not hold
this information.


However in the interest of trying to provide an answer your request I can
confirm that Audit Scotland carries out work for the Accounts Commission
and the Auditor General for Scotland. We audit over 220 public sector
organisations and we publish a wide range of [1]reports on matters of
public interest. The range of work we do means that audits will use a
variety of IT systems including:


·         Microsoft Office products ( Excel, Word, PowerPoint etc)

·         [2]MKinsight  as an Electronic working papers system

·         And [3]Tableau for presentation of data in our reports

I hope this information answers your request.


Please note that under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002
(FOI) a valid request for information must contain the name of the person
making the request and a request containing only the first name of an
individual is not a valid. For future requests to be valid you need to use
your full name.


Yours sincerely




Ian Metcalfe

Corporate Performance Officer
