Letter from Scott Woolveridge, dated June 2011

As acting Chief Executive of the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority, I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question asking pursuant to the Answer of 16 May 2011, Official Report, columns 15-16W, on security certificate, on what date the risk assessment was carried out and completed; and if the IPSA will place in the Library a copy of the report on that risk assessment. 57623

The risk assessment and review was carried out by Calyx security staff on 20 April to ensure that IPSA’s security measures were not compromised as a result of the expiration of the certificate. The conclusions, which were that the risk was deemed to be low and that security levels were not diminished, were communicated to IPSA by telephone. No written report exists to place in the Library.
