Subject:       Executive directors expenses

 

Request:

I would like to request the following information under the Freedom of Information Act:

 

  1. Please provide statements for all purchase cards, ‘p-cards’, or any other credit or debit cards paid out using public funds, used by or for executive directors for the two years April 2016 – March 2017, and April 2017 – March 2018. Please ensure information is provided for the two separate years. I am also requesting receipts for these expenses.

 

  1. Please also provide details of all spending by executive directors using their own money which is then then claimed back from public funds for the two years April 2016 – March 2017, and April 2017 – March 2018. Please ensure information is provided for the two separate years. I am also requesting receipts for these expenses.

 

  1. Please also provide details of all spending on behalf of that individual, by the trust, for the two years April 2016 – March 2017, and April 2017 – March 2018. Please ensure information is provided for the two separate years. I am also requesting receipts for these expenses.

 

Such purchases might include, but are not restricted to, costs associated with private car use (e.g. mileage, care hire costs); public travel (e.g., train, bus, air fares); subsistence, (e.g. meals whilst away from normal place of work and hotel costs); spending on properties including purchase costs, rent, upkeep, refurbishment costs and relocation costs. Please include any other expenses which fall outside of these categories.

 

Please state if any expenses submitted by the below executives across the two years were rejected, and in each example give all details, including the name of the executive, the cost of the expense submitted, where it was purchased from, what is was for and the reason it was rejected. I am also requesting the receipts for these items.

 

I recognise that the information I have requested may overlap with material that you publish online. But I am asking for a level of detail which goes beyond this, so there is no argument that the material is already publicly accessible.

 

Please provide the above information for all executive directors for the two time periods I have specified. If this exceeds the cost limit under section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act, please could you provide this information for as many executive directors as possible before the cost limit is reached, in this order of preference:  

 

Chief Executive

Deputy Chief Executive

Chief Finance Officer

Chief Operating Officer

Medical Director

Commercial Development Director

Business Development Director

Strategic Director

Chief Nursing Officer

Director of Development

Director of HR

Director of Communications

And then all other Executive Directors.

 

I recognise that job titles vary between organisations so please find the closest possible comparator for those which I have named. If one of the roles I have stated do not exist in your organisation please omit them and move on to the next one in the list.

 

Again, please note that if it is possible within financial constraints, I would like the details for all executive directors – so the above list should not be necessary.

 

If more than one person has held a post during this time, please provide the information for both of those people.

Please note that we are unable to provide receipts. This is because they are not kept centrally but by the individuals themselves.

3. Please also provide details of all spending on behalf of that individual, by the trust, for the two years April 2016 – March 2017, and April 2017 – March 2018. Please ensure information is provided for the two separate years. I am also requesting receipts for these expenses.
