112.This subsection sets out the matters which the auditor must include in his report on an account. It does not apply to an account of the payments into and out of the Scottish Consolidated Fund. In particular, the auditor must report his/her findings on whether the expenditure and receipts shown in the account were incurred in accordance with relevant enactments, the Budget Act or Acts for the period in question, and the provisions of sections 4 to 7 of this Act. These latter provisions set out rules for payments out of the Fund and for the application of receipts.
113.The auditor must also report on: whether any sums paid out of the Fund were applied in accordance with section 65 of the Scotland Act 1998 (i.e. that they meet the specified conditions for payments out of the Fund); whether expenditure and receipts have been incurred or applied in accordance with any applicable guidance issued by the Scottish Ministers; and whether the account complies with any applicable direction issued under any enactment.
