RE: Urgent enquiry ‐ ref CCFR5324
Further to our telephone conversation, we would expect the following:
As grant maker, MHCLG will:
Confirm in writing the capital and revenue amounts that the Accountable Body will receive for expenditure in
each financial year
Pay the full year’s funding so that the Accountable Body can allocate to the local partnership according to the
spending profile agreed with MHCLG
As the grant maker, have responsibility for determining a course of action and communicating with the grant
holder should concerns arise, including relating to project spend or project management.
Copy the Accountable Body into all correspondence with project leads in the interests of open and
transparent communication between all parties
As Accountable Body, local authorities will:
Pay projects according to the spend profile agreed with MHCLG, in response to evidence of commitment or
Copy MHCLG into all correspondence with project leads, in the interests of open and transparent
communication between all parties
Take steps to satisfy themselves that funds are being spent legitimately and for the purposes of the grant
agreed with MHCLG. In doing so, they may wish to make reference to MHCLG’s Statement of Expectations for
CCF grant holders, as well as their own established principles and procedures for making grants to local voluntary
Notify MHCLG immediately should they not be satisfied that the grant is being spent legitimately, providing
evidence in support of these concerns where it is available.
12 month contract. If they can confirm the CCF revenue will be spent by March 2021, is there an issue
with their contracts continuing for a further 6/12 months to allow for the intended tasks to be completed
We would also like to seek clarification if it is acceptable to release the original application into the public
domain? Southwold Town Council have had a request to do so and wanted this clarified with the funders
as well as the request to update the timetable before a public meeting that is to be held on Monday the
11th of November.
