Dear Northamptonshire County Council,

In the first commissioners report setting out early steps to support Northamptonshire County Council to recover their financial situation and bring spending back under control, the commissioners write: "We have appointed a new Chief Executive and are pleased to have attracted a candidate with considerable experience and a strong track record."

Please can I see all recorded info with respect to the decision taken to appoint the new Chief Exec, e.g. the process used for appointing the new chief exec, the criteria used for appointing the new chief exec; how the salary for the new chief exec was decided; job description for the new chief exec; terms and conditions of the contract of the new chief exec.

Yours faithfully,

Johnny Jarvis

Dear Northamptonshire County Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Northamptonshire County Council's handling of my FOI request 'Appointment of new Chief Exec'.

Thanks for the info provided but I don't believe you have provided me with all recorded information in scope of my request.

Perhaps my request was unclear but you hinted at what I was looking for in the link you provided re: the decision to appoint the Chief Executive Theresa Grant.

I want to see recorded information made by the appointment panel
"which was convened in accordance with the provisions of Part 4 H of the Constitution
(Officer Employment Procedure Rules)" as noted in the Appointment of the Chief Executive Report:

https://cmis.northamptonshire.gov.uk/cmi...

In that report it states "The Panel was chaired by the Leader of the Council and comprised five councillors appointed according to the requirements of political balance, as well as the two Commissioners.
3.3 The panel were supported in their deliberations by a further panel of partners and stakeholders who also interviewed candidates and reported their views to the appointment panel."

I wish to see the recorded info from these deliberations.

With regard to the pay scale for the Chief Exec, thank you for sending me the NCC Local Chief Executive pay scale.

However, my query asked specifically +how+ the salary for the new chief exec was decided.
According to Press reports this is £195,043 a year, which is SCP 4 on the Pay Scale. Please can I see all recorded info which shows how and why it was decided to pay Theresa Grant the SCP 4 Pay Scale rather than another amount on the pay scale.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/a...

Yours faithfully,

Johnny Jarvis
