It's been mentioned before that NCC has abandoned its investigation of the housing allocations scandal. As we know, they've sort of spent £100k on paying outside solicitors to do Legal Services' normal work while the cosy in-house team 'investigated' the housing corruption that went on.
The District Auditor says that this is reasonable (see p4 and beyond). After all, £100k is a lot of money.
The District Auditor charged £388k (para 8 p5) for her annually required services. Yet abandoning an investigation into the worst public housing scandal since Dame Shirley Porter's shennanigins, having only spent just over 25% of that figure is apparently 'reasonable'.
Btw, in an unrelated fact, Jon Collins works as a self employed consultant to the Audit Commission.
