Answer for Transparency and accountability at London and Partners

Answered By: 
The Mayor

It has been agreed that L&P shall adhere to the following transparency and accountability arrangements:

       Publish the 2015/16 business plan after IPB approval this year.

       Bring forward the decision making process in future years to facilitate the Assembly reviewing how L&P intends to spend the GLA grant as part of the Assembly's scrutiny of the Mayor's budget.

       Publish key policies including: procurement policy, travel and expenses policy, gifts and hospitality policy, remuneration policy and declarations of interest of board members.

       Share quarterly updates with the Assembly outlining the progress against L&P's key economic performance indicators.

       Invite Assembly members to attend the L&P AGM.

       Continue to respond positively to requests from the Assembly about how it spends its public funds, with L&P's COO as the single point of contact between L&P and the Assembly.

These arrangements have now come into effect.
