Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Greater London Authority,

According to Section 7 of the GLA's Capital Funding Guide, each summer the GLA sends lead partners (housing associations) a random list of GLA funded schemes to be audited, in order to ensure that they comply with the GLA's funding conditions.

The housing association then instructs an independent auditor to check its scheme files against a GLA checklist and drafts a standardised report confirming that GLA funding conditions are being complied with - i.e. rent levels charged for affordable housing.

The GLA then compiles a Compliance Audit Report for each housing association based on the findings of the independent auditor's reports for those randomly selected schemes.

Please provide me with a copy of the GLA's most recent Compliance Audit Report and corresponding independent auditor report (including completed checklists) in relation to Notting Hill Genesis Housing Association.

Yours faithfully,

Paul Slattery

Greater London Authority
