This question covers two types of bodies; those that receive funds direct from the Scottish Ministers and those who are funded indirectly through other bodies. Information on the latter category is not readily available. To obtain this information would involve disproportionate cost.
Of those bodies that receive grants from the Scottish Ministers, the bodies listed below receive less than 50% of their income from public funds as defined under section 21(5) of the Public Finance and Accountability Bill.
In addition to the bodies listed below, the Scottish Ministers pay grants from the European Regional Development Fund and the European Social Fund. The grants are paid to a variety of organisations including companies, local authorities and educational institutions. The application process for these grants does not require applicants to inform the Executive of their annual income and it is therefore not possible to ascertain, without disproportionate costs, which bodies receive less than 50% of their funding from the Scottish Ministers. There are some other recipients of public funds for which establishing whether they received less than 50% of their income from public funds would involve disproportionate cost. These include payments made under the Regional Selective Assistance Scheme and those made to voluntary organisations for projects involving social issues, housing, supporting the rural economy and architectural heritage.
