New Deal Investigation complete

The investigation into Burngreave New Deal by Sheffield City Council around contracts awarded to Jack Davies and Bill Husband is now complete.

The Messenger understands the report (attachment below) is to be presented to the full Council on Wednesday 4th June and will then be public. It may reveal answers to questions such as:

  • How much, exactly, was paid for these contracts and what tender process was followed?

  • How much was paid to Bill Husband for 6 months work as deputy Chief Executive and whether references were taken up for this appointment?

  • Whether the programme had adequate procedures to cover these situations and whether they were used?

  • Were the board members fully aware of what had occurred?

Speaking on behalf of the programme, Deputy Chief Executive Ann Allen said:

“BNDfC has co-operated fully with the internal audit by Sheffield City Council and we will welcome the outcome of the report which we believe will find no evidence of any improper conduct.”

“We acknowledge that the recommendations to be made will show that some of our procedures were not as rigidly controlled as they could have been and we have already taken immediate steps to make the necessary improvements.”
