2nd Request - Changes in approach to the control & management of arms length bodies (ALB’s)

Jimmy Hamill made this Freedom of Information request to Department of Health (Northern Ireland)

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Department of Health (Northern Ireland),

I am writing to request an update to FOI request DoH 2017-0057 which was incomplete in its answer.

The original request concerned the Department of Health (Northern Ireland)'s information relating to 'Changes in approach to the control and management of arms length bodies (ALB’s)'.

You stated in your response of 25 July 2017 that "no similar communication regarding "Approach to Financial Planning" has been issued for 2017/18. "

I note from the Western Trust Financial Performance Report for month ended 31 July 2017 that there is reference to "The Permanent Secretary advised all Trusts through the HSCB on 14 February 2017 of the approach to be taken to financial planning for 2017/18"
This is available on Page 4 at link:
http://www.westerntrust.hscni.net/pdf/Fi...

This is precisely what I had requested under FOI 2017-0057. It is unfortunate that the original FOI was incomplete.

Can this communication (from Permanent Secretary on 14 February 2017) now be made available to me at your convenience.
A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:

Yours faithfully,

Jimmy Hamill
