Are there any “rules” that a PC must legally follow when dealing with grant applications from Charities? I have seen for example
a) The applying charity must have followed their own internal grant application guidelines which usually involve “authority to proceed” being countersigned at a certain level(s)
b) Any S137 payment must be assessed by considering how the grant directly effects the population i.e. if grant effects 10% of the population. then grant cannot exceed 10% of S137 limit
c) No more than one grant per year
Or are these just part of locally adopted policies?
