Stuart Hardwicke CARRUTHERS

Dear Sir or Madam,

Please provide a copy of all guidance provided by the LGOs / CLAE to CIPFA and/or s151 officers of Council's and/or Audit Commission and/or District Auditors of Councils to ensure that there has been compliance with LGO's recommendations and any agreements made prior to issue of a formal report (ie local settlements and MI reports).. and reporting by CIPFA members of any failure of local government to follow the recommendations in any auditors report and/or governance statement of an audited body.

The CLAE are fortunate to have a Council member of CIPFA also as an LGO.. so this information should be readily available.. as the lacuna in regulation is highly apparent and has doubtless been raised formally by the CLAE as a consequence (eg triennial review)

Yours faithfully,

Stuart Hardwicke CARRUTHERS

Foi Officer, The Local Government and Social Care Ombudsman
