Action, not lies!

Here are two Action Plans prepared by Wirral's Department of Adult Sodial Services for meetings of the Audit and Risk Management Committee.

The first will be part of the Internal Auditor's Report presented to the Committee next Wednesday, 23 September, 2009.

How many people who read the report (assuming they can untangle it) will look closely at the Action Plan? And if they do, will they notice something rather odd?

The second is the Action Plan which the Committee actually approved at the meeting of 4th November, 2008. Compare the right-hand columns in both. Spot the differece?

Give that gentleman a coconut, because he's absolutely right!

The important itens are the two at the bottom of the tables. They were the two items which raised most concern and alarm at the November meeting. They were the two items that DASS were instructed to bring forward as their original timescale was unacceptable to the Committee.

And what have they done? They've put back the completion date, and hope that nobody will notice. Bad luck, DASS, it has been noted.
