Section 9 (b) of the 2005 Act - Condition of Grant

The request was successful.

Dear Scottish Further and Higher Education Funding Council,

Thank you for your disclosure at https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/3...

I refer you to the letter from Michael Cross to Laurence Howells dated 7th April 2015: Part 3, 4, & 5 and relevant notes underneath. That refer to section 9B of the 2005 Act whereby this condition of grant in aid for funding to the SFC is dependent upon the council requiring EVERY college and any assigned college which appear to the council to constitute good practice in relation to colleges of Further Education. Notwithstanding this, at Section 4 and 5 Mr Cross continues that “under section 12B(1) of the 2005 act to IMPOSE a condition on the college any Principles of Governance on it which appear to the Council to constitute good practice in relation to Colleges of Further Education. Dated 3rd MARCH 2014.

The notes continue to say: In essence, this will cover any body that is generally eligible to be funded by SFC for learning provision that is not a higher education institution.

Therefore under the provision of FOISA please provide me with any and all forms of recorded information the SFC hold appertaining to it NOT meeting this condition of Grant, in electronic format please include within the scope of this request all Internal audit progress reports in relation to - Grant funding administration compliance.

By reference of SFC not meeting its condition of grant, I refer you to the Order of the Removal of the Glasgow Clyde Board for significant failures of Governance laid before Parliament by the then Cabinet Minister for Education and Life Long Learning Angela Constance on 8th October 2015.

Yours faithfully,

Ashton King
