FOI 10643

Remote/out of hours journals

Request

I am undertaking some research on journals carried out in public sector finance departments and would like to ask the following question under a FOI ;

Has your authority currently or in the past banned journals being done remotely or out of hours despite having the capability to allow remote and out of hours journals to be carried out securely. If this is the case, or has been the case, what were the reasons ?

Response

The Council does not ban journals from being done remotely or out of hours as there are authorisation procedures in place that always apply regardless of when the journal is completed.
