The request was successful.

Dear Northamptonshire County Council,

I am researching on the impact of bus cuts and changes in legislation relating to Section 19 and Section 22 Permits issued to Not for Profit operators of buses. This change is likely to have a significant impact on the cost base for operating Community Transport Services which are carried out by numerous charitable and social enterprise organisations.

To assist with our response to Dept of Transport we request the level of spend with these organisations within your authority.

From our research we have identified at least two such groups being Northampton Door to Door Service and Shire Community Services but this is not an exclusive list

Please provide
1. Please advise the names of any Not for Profit organisations that payments have been made to in the last five financial years (2013/14, 2014/15, 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2017/18)

2. for the last 5 financial years either actual or latest known amount for the immediate past fiscal year) the amount of payments made to each of these organisations covering but not limited to
2.1 Grants to support the operation of each organisation
2.2 Payments for services provided by each organisation for Adult Social needs
2.3 Payments for services provided by each organisation for Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)
2.4 Payments for concessionary fare reimbursement

3. For the Grants in 2.1 above please provide for each organisation the following
3.1 Application process undertaken and how they were evaluated
3.2 What assessment and review process was undertaken by yourselves (inc Northamptonshire Highways) to ensure compliance and accuracy of submissions

4.0 For payments in 2.4 above, how was the rates charged by the organisation calculated, what audits have been carried out and how much has been reclaimed from the operators for errors found

Yours faithfully,

Nigel Hinch
