Dear Freedom of Information Requests,

Co-design refers to:
'Participatory design (originally co-operative design, now often co-design) is an approach to design attempting to actively involve all stakeholders (e.g. employees, partners, customers, citizens, end users) in the design process to help ensure the result meets their needs and is usable.'

PPI refers to:
'Patient and public involvement (PPI) in research (also known as service user/lay
involvement) refers to an active partnership between patients and/or members of
the public and researchers. Involvement is distinct from participation in research:
patients and the public you actively involve are contributing to the research process
as advisers and possibly also as co-researchers. '

Yours sincerely,

N Robinson

Dear N Robinson,

 

Doncaster Council does not hold specific details on whether individual
external consultancy costs relate to Co-design or PPI. 

 

Please confirm whether you would like to know the expenditure on all
external consultancy as a total, or summarised in some other way, e.g. by
Council Directorate or by Agency name. 

 

Please also confirm which period you would like any information to relate
to - the Council accounts for this expenditure based on the Financial Year
running April to March – e.g. do you require the information based on the
2015/16 financial year?

 

I will of course provide a formal response to your FOI request once I
receive further instruction from you. 

 

Regards,

 

Carl Evans
Principal Finance Officer

Dear Freedom of Information Requests,

Thanks for your response and providing alternative information available. In this case external consultancy costs by agency names would be useful, and this would be for the financial years 2014-15 and 2015-16 if possible.

Yours sincerely,

N Robinson
