Community Justice (Scotland) Act 2016

Section 18: Review of national performance framework

29.Section 18 requires Community Justice Scotland to review the national performance framework within 5 years of the publication of the original framework. Thereafter, they may review the framework when they see fit but at the latest, within five years of the last review. When reviewing the framework, Community Justice Scotland must take account of the national strategy in place at that time; and must consult community justice partners (other than Scottish Ministers); such third sector bodies involved in community justice as it considers appropriate; and any other appropriate persons. Community Justice Scotland may, following a review, propose changes to the framework to Scottish Ministers or publish a statement indicating that they consider no revision to be required. Scottish Ministers may amend or reject any such proposals, but must consult Community Justice Scotland before doing so. Should Scottish Ministers accept the proposed changes, then they must as soon as practicable revise and publish the revised framework. Should the Scottish Ministers reject a proposal to revise the framework, then they must publish a statement to that effect. Once published, the revised framework becomes subject to this section as though it was the original framework.
