So it looks like a serious fraud has been committed at Barnet Council. While they don't want to reveal the details we must understand how this can have been allowed to happen. Was an outsourced finance department and flawed BACS payment system to blame? We need answers ASAP. pic.twitter.com/iP6voWLLmr— Mr Reasonable (@ReasonableNB) April 12, 2018
John Dix also notes that after five years of the One Barnet outsourcing BACS processing is also experiencing serious problems. It looks like next week's audit committee meeting might be quite "interesting"
Problems with the BACS payment system highlights no clear segregation of duties. This should not be happening nearly five years into the Capita contract and why wasn't it identified earlier? Expect some awkward questions at Barnet Audit Committee. pic.twitter.com/qMoLfOXr1N— Mr Reasonable (@ReasonableNB) April 12, 2018
