Following the announcement of IPSA 'aggregating' small items of stationary, as mentioned in the press article below: 

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2722652/MPs-strike-deal-claims-pens-paper-clips-secret-sparking-accusations-cover-up.html 

Please provide me with all internal guidance which has been prepared to help and advise staff with this aggregation process. This should include, but not be limited to, how items will be aggregated into costs, when it is appropriate to do, when it is not, what should/shouldn't be aggregated into a larger cost and other information held surrounding this process.  

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to time/cost limitation put in place by the Act please provide guidance under S.16 as to how I can refine my request to be included in the scope of the Act.

 

Response
