As Chair of the Budget Committee, you will already be ware that all payments are made in line with the procurement procedures. Normally, this will involve the award of a contract with a specification of work and agreed monitoring procedures.

Where payment is made by way of rant rather than contract, the conditions of the grant stipulate how he funding must be used, and monitoring meetings with a named lead officer. .
