How are you spending the £3000??

Sally Ann Voak made this Freedom of Information request to Croydon Borough Council

The request was partially successful.

Dear Croydon Borough Council, thank you for your reply to my FOI request. dated 5th January. However, your answer was vague and did not give any details of exactly how the £3000 you have spent to date has been allocated. What does "project Management" include? Surely you have paid officers who manage projects as part of their job? The same thing applies to "Legal Services" - there must already be an existing budget for those. As for "Sundry Precurement costs", this could be lunches,drinks, you name it...I am assuming it does not include stationery and postage? More details please. We have a right to know these things. This money was supplied, in the first instance, by the London Borough of Croydon's Council Tax payers...your residents, and,ultimately, your bosses.
Transparency, please.

Yours faithfully,

Sally Ann Voak
