Dear Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy,

Further to your response to my recent information requests, references
FOI2019/01852 and FOI2019/07694, would you please supply the following further information:-
1. You have indicated that Ms Engel “claimed and was paid for a total of 156.5 days” in the period October 1st to April 16th. Your analysis of days under the headings initially requested by myself gives a total (allowing for days on which multiple events are recorded) of just 110 days. Please supply details of the remaining 46.5 days for which Ms Engel was paid, to include dates, locations, persons or organisations involved, description of engagement and relevance to job description.
2. What was the process for approval of payment of claimed days worked, which Department was responsible and what detail of justification was required?
3. What additional expenses were claimed by (and paid to) Ms Engel for the period October 1st to April 16th?
4. For the sake of completion, please provide full details of further days worked and expenses claimed by Ms Engel for the remaining days of her employment from April 17th up to the date of her confirmed date of leaving.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Bales
