On Monday (6th February) Haringey Council will be called on to hold Executive members to account over the wastage of £10 million of public money through a massive overspend on the Council’s IT upgrade project (Tech Refresh).

The motion tabled by the Lib Dem opposition also calls on the Council to acknowledge the findings of the damning Audit Commission report into the project, released earlier this month.

Opposition Leader, Cllr Neil Williams, who has tabled the motion says that the Executive must be held to account over the ‘negligent’ handling of the case.

Cllr Williams comments:

“To allow a budget to slip by £10 million is a totally unacceptable waste of public funds. I hope that on Monday members vote as responsible, elected representatives rather than whipped party members.”
