ANY and ALL information held on Personal Budgets by NCC

Waiting for an internal review by Northamptonshire County Council of their handling of this request.

Dear Northamptonshire County Council,

This is a NEW request that is now broadened to

"ANY and ALL information held on Personal Budgets by NCC"

for example
spending.management reports, audits

I have cc'd Northampton Chronicle and Echo reporter Paul Lynch
in light of his report
https://www.northamptonchron.co.uk/news/...
"Public Health England...the funding may have been used to prop up adult social services."

as you state you hold no data on adult social services spending but the report states you know otherwise.

and cc'd new head of the Council Tony McArdle and Brian Roberts on this subject as you claim the council holds no data on spending.

as your previous response is incredulous because
as you state
you have no knowledge of how you spend personal budgets or
how you spend even £1 of £250,000,000!

You are stating
Northampton County County council holds
NO information
on how Personal Budgets are being spent

You are stating
this is in any form
e.g. analysed or reported

You are stating
this includes the direct payments NCC manages itself on behalf of the client,

You are stating
you dont not analyse what staff are authorizing there are NO reports?

You are stating
this includes the payment card managed PBs

You are stating
you have no audits, no management reports detailing how NCC is spending £250,000,000 a year.

You are stating
this is also the fact after the statement today 18th June by
Director of finance Mark McLaughlin told councillors the level of reserves had been insufficient.
"£12m for a £1bn organisation with services such as adult social care is not enough, nowhere near enough. Nowhere else is anywhere near the position that Northamptonshire is in."
as reported at
https://www.northamptonchron.co.uk/news/...

You are stating
in actual fact, Director of finance Mark McLaughlin has no idea of spending, because NCC holds no information on itemised spending and has no reports on the spending in Adult Social Care PBs

You are stating
Even since May 2018
when two government-appointed commissioners have been sent in to run a financially troubled council. Communities Secretary James Brokenshire said Tony McArdle and Brian Roberts in place at Northamptonshire County Council until 2021 NCC holds no information on individual spending and has no reports on the spending in Adult Social Care PBs

You are stating
in actual fact, Communities Secretary James Brokenshire said Tony McArdle and Brian Roberts not requested any spending report?

You are stating
No audits, reports, analysis are available of what even £1 of £250,000,000 is being spent on by NCC as PBs

If you state you hold NO information
then we will proceed to the ICO
where you state you have no knowledge of personal budgets or how you spend £250,000,000!
