Dear Mr Bowett

I refer to your request for information from Greater Manchester Police Authority received by email on the 15 February 2012. I am treating your request as a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Greater Manchester Police Authority is a public authority and, as the key statutory duty, has to secure the maintenance of an efficient and effective police force in its area and hold the Chief Constable to account for the delivery of policing services.

I am happy to provide you with the information that you have requested, some of which you may be able to access on the GMPA website, but shall be grateful if you will clarify exactly what you mean by the term "current stakeholder(s)" as this could be open to quite a wide interpretation.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely

Nigel J Battersby

Dear Battersby, Nigel,

For further clarification of the term 'Current Stakeholder (s)'

Please bear in mind that the GMPA have a board of directors, the
Chairman being Councillor Paul Murphy of Manchester City Council. A
board of directors is ELECTED by SHAREHOLDERS.
The current Chief Constable is now clearly functioning (according
to the Manchester City Councils Constitution) as the CEO, Chief
Executive Officer of the GMPA.
This information will considerably narrow down your field of
interpretation.

Yours sincerely,

wayne bowett

Dear Battersby, Nigel,

Correction to my previous message.... I meant to put "According to
the GMPA's Scheme of Delegation" and not 'According to Manchester
City Councils Constitution.'

Please forgive my slight mix up.

Yours sincerely,

wayne

Dear Mr Bowett

I thank you for your further correspondence received by email on the 19 February 2012.

Greater Manchester Police Authority is a body corporate established under section 3 of the Police Act 1996. It is a public body and does not have a Board of Directors elected by shareholders as such, as is the case with a public limited company.

Greater Manchester Police Authority is comprised of 19 Members. 10 are Elected Members who are all Local Councillors who have been nominated to sit on the Police Authority by their respective Local Authority. There are 10 Local Authority districts that make up Greater Manchester. The remaining 9 members are Independent Members who have been selected to sit on the Police Authority following a recruitment process, one of whom is also a Magistrate.

The Chairman of the Police Authority is Councillor Paul Murphy whom is an elected member nominated by Manchester City Council. The Vice Chairman is Mrs Christine McGawley, an Independent Member and Magistrate.

The Chief Executive of Greater Manchester Police Authority is Barbara Spicer whom is also the Chief Executive of Salford City Council.

The Executive Director of the Police Authority is Russell Bernstein who holds day to day management responsibility for the Police Authority.

One of the functions of the Police Authority is to appoint the Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police. The Chief Constable remains totally independent of the Police Authority and is held to account by the Police Authority for matters relating to the running of the Force. He does not sit on the Police Authority.

The Police Authority's "current stakeholders" could broadly be described as "anyone who possesses an interest in crime and disorder matters in Greater Manchester".

I trust that this provides you with a satisfactory response to your enquiry under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

If you are unhappy with the way Greater Manchester Police Authority has handled your request for information, you can request a review by writing to:

Mr Russell Bernstein, Executive Director, Greater Manchester Police Authority, Salford Civic Centre, Chorley Road, Swinton, Salford, M27 5DA.

If you remain dissatisfied with the handling of your request or complaint, you have a right of appeal to the Information Commissioner at:

The Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane,

Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

Telephone: 08456 30 60 60

or 01625 54 57 45

Website: www.ico.gov.uk

There is no charge for making an appeal.

I trust that this is of assistance to you.
