Dear Mr Harvey

 

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000

 

Thank you for your email of 09 July 2017 requesting information about
Adult Social Care Management Board.

 

From our preliminary assessment, it is clear that we will not be able to
answer your request without further clarification. 

 

Having consulted with legal colleagues about your reference to LASSA 1970,
we remain unclear about the scope of your reference to a senior management
board.

 

Please can you clarify whether you mean:

The Council’s ASC Leadership Team; in Leicester this comprises the DASS
and divisional directors with representation from HR and Finance.

 

The Council’s full Corporate Management Team; in Leicester this comprises
the Chief Operating Officer, 3 strategic directors (inc DASS) and all
divisional directors.

 

We assume you refer to the former but wish to confirm before responding.

 

Once you have clarified your request, we will be able to reconsider your
request.  If this clarification is not received within one month your
request will be considered to have lapsed.  Under section 1(3) of the
Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), a public authority need not comply with
a request unless any further information reasonably required to locate the
information is supplied.

 

Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future
communications.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Information Governance & Risk Team

Leicester City Council

Dear info-requests,

Thank you for your response and guidance in relation to my request. I can clarify that in the absence of a formal Adult social care board I mean for the questions to be applied to your ACS Leadership team.

Can you advise whether the PSW forms part of the ACS Leadership team.

Yours sincerely,

Mark Harvey
