Policies and Plans
Annual Business Plan
At the end of March each year the SFCA publishes its Annual Business Plan to inform the membership of its objectives and Priorities for Action for the coming year. This is circulated to clubs for consultation in January each year and is approved at the AGM in March.
Strategic 5 Year Plan
The SFCA’s Strategic Plan for 2015-2018 has been written to support the ‘One Plan’ for Scottish Angling which has been developed in partnership with SANA and SFSA. Working in partnership within the ADBoS has helped to secure Sportscotland funding for all of the governing bodies, whilst ensuring that the uniqueness of each discipline and independence of the individual SGBs is both recognised and protected. The SFCA Strategic Plan can be found by clicking the link below:
Corporate Governance and Risk Management
To assure the membership that appropriate checks and balances both exist and are applied, the SFCA operates to a formal Corporate Governance & Risk Management Plan.
Business Continuity Plan
The SFCA has a duty to ensure that the Governing Body can continue to operate and effectively govern the sport of coarse angling in Scotland in any eventuality.
For this reason the SFCA is currently developing a Business Continuity Plan.
At present the SFCA is not in a position where it can afford to purchase and maintain an electronic accounting package due to the cost and challenge of training new Honorary Treasurers. Instead it operates a bespoke accounting system which is detailed in a comprehensive set of Finance Instructions.
Data Protection Policy
While the SFCA as a ‘not for profit’ organisation and is not required to register with the Information Commissioner, it is still required to comply with the Data Protection Act and ensure that all personal information is appropriately protected, maintained up to date and only kept for as long as it is required. For this reason the Executive Committee has chosen to voluntarily register with the Information Commissioner to demonstrate our commitment to protect and process your data properly. To assist us in doing this the SFCA has a Data Protection Policy which can be found by clicking the link below:
Gifts, Rewards & Hospitality
To ensure transparency and avoid the risk of false accusations or adverse publicity all SFCA Office Bearers, Coaches and Volunteers are required to formally record the receipt of any Gift, Reward or Hospitality received that could be construed as being in connection with their position within the SFCA.
Details of the requirement and guidance are contained within the Gifts Rewards and Hospitality Policy (PDF)
