The financial data below has all come from Folkestone & Hythe District Council. It excludes VAT. It is the Temporary staff costs data from the payment to suppliers published monthly by the council(Orange) and the Data received while the 2019/20 accounts were open for inspection (Dark Pink).
The sum from the payment to suppliers data shows the council spent £1,338,239 on temporary staff. The data from the accounts supplied by the council shows they spent £1,156,294 on temporary staff.
The discrepancy between the two is £181,945.
No explanation by the Council has been given why there is such a large discrepancy between the two sets of data. One has been sought but so far an answer there has come none.
We suspect the Overview & Scrutiny Committee members will not request to scrutinise the data, nor the Audit & Governance Committee.
The council officer responsible for the finance’s and the data above is, Corporate Director Charlotte Spendley. She is the s151 officer – the person legally responsible for the money – and earns an annual salary of approx £105,000 (including fees and allowances).
So we leave it to you to mull over why there is such a large discrepancy between the two sets of data, both supplied by Folkestone & Hythe District Council.
