Expenditure on administering the Scottish Executive is subject to the same rigorous scrutiny and control as other areas of the budget. Details of the target to contain spending on the administration by the Scottish Executive relative to the total Scottish budget are presented annually to Parliament in the supporting budget documents which accompany the Budget Bill. The latest figures for 2001-02 and the plans for future years show that total spending on administration as a proportion of the total budget is about 1 per cent, the same as in 1997-98.
