In response to correspondence from Helen Goodman MP on behalf of 11 other MPs the NAO conducted an investigation into the Department for Communities and Local Government’s approach to the allocation of transition grant and rural services delivery grant (rural grant) for 2016-17. Our findings were initially shared with Helen Goodman, and the Special Interest Group for Municipal Authorities (SIGOMA) who wrote to us subsequently in similar terms, as an annex to correspondence on 15 February 2017.

The material now available on our website includes the annex to the correspondence sent to Helen Goodman and SIGOMA. We have also made a spreadsheet file available containing the worked through calculations for allocating transition grant which has also been shared with Helen Goodman and SIGOMA.
