Thirty per cent of the money was awarded to London venues including Ronnie Scott’s, various O2 Academies and St Paul’s Cathedral. “From St Paul’s and Ronnie Scott’s to The Lowry and Durham Cathedral, we’re protecting heritage and culture in every corner of the country to save jobs and ensure it can bounce back strongly.” Show Comments ▼ The £2.1m cash injection for St Paul’s will go towards construction and maintenance costs of the cathedral, which is usually propped up by tourism revenue, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) said today.  The government’s latest Culture Recovery fund will also provide funding to heritage sites around the country such as Durham Cathedral and Blenheim Palace to help them weather the coronavirus crisis.  O2 Academy owner Academy Music Group will receive just shy of £3m to support live music venues across London, Leeds and Liverpool. The London Venue Group, which operates cultural spaces across the capital including Flat Iron Square, will receive £2.4m of emergency cash to support them during the nationwide lockdown and to “enable them to explore streaming options in the future”, DCMS said.

In largely symbolic move, Express Scripts ends coverage of Valeant drug

In largely symbolic move, Express Scripts ends coverage of Valeant drug

first_img Express Scripts, the nation’s largest pharmacy benefits manager, is excluding an expensive Valeant Pharmaceuticals diabetes drug from its list of medicines that are reimbursed. Jeff Roberson/AP “There’s more significance for public relations than formulary coverage,” said Adam Fein of Pembroke Consulting, which tracks pharmaceutical distribution. “Express Scripts needs to demonstrate to their clients that they’re getting tough with manufacturers, because a lot of health plans are questioning Valeant’s actions. But this is just one drug (that is being excluded). So the news has almost very limited impact on actual drug spending, but it’s a great way for Express Scripts to send a signal.”Indeed, in the face of rising drug prices, Express Scripts is trying to adopt a tougher public stance and over the past two years has grown increasingly assertive in restricting medicines that are listed on its national formulary. Last year, the company made headlines by playing off drug makers against one another to obtain lower costs for hepatitis C treatments.Express Scripts, however, cited another reason for its move — a deal that Valeant recently struck with Walgreens Boots Alliance, the big pharmacy chain, to sell many of its medicines at a discount. The benefits manager fears this might encourage the chain to bypass a lower-cost generic and, instead, “dispense Glumetza at a higher cost to consumers,” according to the note.Fein explained that benefits managers cannot easily substitute lower-cost generics for some Valeant drugs, because the product formulations are not always the same. This can make it difficult for benefits managers to place restrictions on the use of some higher-priced Valeant drugs, he said. And there are early indications that the deal with Walgreens is increasing prescriptions for Valeant medicines.“So the timing (of the move by Express Scripts) is tied to the deal, as well,” said Fein. PharmalotIn largely symbolic move, Express Scripts ends coverage of Valeant drug By Ed Silverman Feb. 1, 2016 Reprints Related: In the latest tussle over rising drug prices, Express Scripts, the nation’s largest pharmacy benefits manager, is excluding an expensive Valeant Pharmaceuticals diabetes drug from its list of medicines that are reimbursed.In explaining its decision, the benefits manager cited a need to “protect our clients and patients from wasteful, unnecessary” drug spending, according to a note posted on its website. Some industry experts, however, said the move appears to be public posturing to appease the company’s many clients.Express Scripts pointed out that Valeant increased the price of its Glumetza drug by more than 800 percent last year, but a “more affordable” generic version becomes available this week. The benefits manager also noted Valeant has a history of jacking up prices. Howard Schiller, the Valent interim chief executive, in fact, will testify before Congress this week about the company’s pricing.advertisement As a benefits manager, Express Scripts negotiates contracts for drug coverage on behalf of corporations, government agencies, and unions, among others. This means the company helps determine health plan pricing and access through formularies, or lists of preferred medicines.But until Valeant was criticized last fall for its dealings with Philidor Rx Services, a specialty pharmacy, which involved allegations of manipulating insurance reimbursements, one expert said most benefits managers were not scrutinizing the drug maker and its pricing. For instance, after that episode, Express Scripts moved to cut ties over similar concerns involving a different specialty pharmacy and another drug maker, Horizon Pharma.advertisement About the Author Reprints Pharmalot Columnist, Senior Writer Ed covers the pharmaceutical industry. Express Scripts sued by compounding pharmacies for alleged antitrust practices Related: Tags Express ScriptsValeant PharmaceuticalsWalgreens An Express Scripts spokesman noted that most formulary changes are covered during an annual update provided each summer, but that changes are made “as needed during the year.”It is worth noting that, recently, Express Scripts also tried to put on a tougher face for its clients by warning about prices for new injectable, cholesterol-lowering meds even before they became available. And last year, Express Scripts ended coverage for about 1,000 ingredients used to make compounded medicines, mostly ointments, creams, and powders that are found in topical treatments.

Numbers decreased by 8000 last week compared to the week prior – according to Meat Industry Ireland.The consequences of these protest may be felt by workers today as hundreds could temporarily loose their job.This also means that farmers may loose the opportunity to sell their cattle to factories.Talks were due to get under way between both parties at Department of Agriculture offices in Backweston, Co Kildare, last night.These were cancelled as meat processors said they would not partake in negotiations while the blockade continued.

NASAA calls for fiduciary duty

NASAA calls for fiduciary duty

It says it opposes legislation that would authorize the SEC to designate a self-regulatory organization for investment advisers. “Rather than outsourcing responsibility for investment adviser oversight, Congress should provide the SEC with sufficient resources to examine all federally registered investment advisers,” it says, adding that it should enact legislation authorizing the SEC’s Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations to collect user fees from the investment advisers it examines. NASAA also says that Congress should pass legislation that would increase the civil monetary penalties the SEC can seek by linking the size of penalties to the amount of harm and investor losses; and that it should establish a private right of action for aiding and abetting violations of the federal securities laws. The group also says it will actively seek legislation to permit “reasonable civil recovery” for fraud associated with crowdfunding and other small offerings. And, it calls on Congress to empower states to provide investors with choices for dispute resolution, and to increase resources devoted to protecting older investors. Additionally, NASAA is calling on Congress to investigate opaque market activities, including dark pools, hedge funds and high-frequency traders. It also notes that it opposes legislation that would impose excessive analytical requirements on independent federal agencies, such as the SEC. “Bills which mandate numerous new cost-benefit analyses, or which vest regulatory analytical authority over independent agency rules with the White House Office of Management and Budget, could fracture the SEC’s capacity to regulate securities markets and protect the investing public,” it says. “To help Main Street investors and businesses recover from the recession and financial crisis, we encourage the 113th Congress to focus its oversight and legislative energies on legislation that better protects investors and promotes economic growth,” said NASAA president and Arkansas securities commissioner, Heath Abshure. Steve Irwin, NASAA president-elect and Pennsylvania banking and securities commissioner, added, “Taken together, the legislative priorities we have outlined today represent positive and progressive changes for the benefit of Main Street investors. They seek to level the playing field for investors by increasing industry and market accountability and transparency, balancing the capital formation needs of small business with strong investor protection, and providing a fair avenue for redress when things go wrong.” The North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA) called on U.S. lawmakers Tuesday to take action in various areas to promote investor confidence, including requiring brokers to adhere to a fiduciary duty. NASAA unveiled its advocacy agenda, highlighting areas where it plans to push for Congressional action. In particular, it urges Congress and the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to “expand the fiduciary standard of care currently applicable to investment advisers to broker-dealers who provide personalized investment advice.” Keywords Best interest standardCompanies North American Securities Administrators Association Facebook LinkedIn Twitter James Langton Related news FCA seeks consumer duty standards Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Investment firms, dealers face MiFID II review FINRA to focus on retail investors in its reviews this year read more

Whistleblower programs attract false claims: SEC

first_img Zoom seminar debacle attracts OSC warning Keywords WhistleblowersCompanies Securities and Exchange Commission Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Related news Share this article and your comments with peers on social media James Langton center_img It says that SEC claims review staff has evaluated these claims and has preliminarily determined that the claimant “is ineligible for an award in these matters or in any future covered or related actions.” Among other things, the order notes that SEC staff has found that the claimant has “knowingly and willfully made false, fictitious, or fraudulent statements and representations to the commission over a course of years and continues to do so,” and that statements made in applications seeking whistleblower awards are “patently false”. It says that the claimants’ numerous, frivolous filings; an unwillingness to withdraw these applications; or, to change their behaviour in spite of repeated requests and explanations by the Office of the Whistleblower (OWB), “has harmed the rights of legitimate whistleblowers and hindered the commission’s implementation of the whistleblower program by, among other things, delaying the commission’s ability to finalize meritorious awards to other claimants and consuming significant staff resources.” The preliminary decision of the claims review staff became final in mid-May, meaning the OWB can now summarily reject all pending and future whistleblower award claims from the anonymous gadfly. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has issued an order ruling that its staff can automatically dismiss all claims for whistleblower awards from an individual who has filed numerous baseless applications seeking a financial award. The order makes clear that regulatory whistleblower programs that may pay significant financial awards can, unfortunately, also attract many false claims that waste a regulator’s resources. In a heavily redacted order issued by the commission, the SEC notes that an unnamed claimant has filed almost 200 applications seeking whistleblower awards. And, in all but one of those cases, the information filed “lack even a superficial factual nexus” to the enforcement actions for which they are seeking an award.

They are: the Registrar General’s Department (RGD); the Administrator General’s Department; the Management Institute for National Development (MIND); and the Companies Office of Jamaica (formerly Office of the Registrar of Companies).Minister of State in the Ministry of Finance and the Public Service, Senator the Hon.

Central control of the organisation is reduced and authority delegated to an appointed Chief Executive Officer (CEO), who has full autonomy over management of the entity’s financial and human resources. The CEO is also responsible for performance targets, developed and agreed on with the responsible Permanent Secretary/Minister.center_img RelatedExecutive Agencies Have Changed the Face of Service Delivery – Cabinet Secretary RelatedExecutive Agencies Have Changed the Face of Service Delivery – Cabinet Secretarylast_img read more

Budget 2021-22: Delivering Australia’s water future

first_imgBudget 2021-22: Delivering Australia’s water future The Government is continuing to deliver on a National Water Grid to help improve water security in our regions.The 2021-22 Budget invests up to a further $258 million, including up to $160 million through the National Water Grid Connections pathway, from the $3.5 billion National Water Grid Fund towards the construction of new and augmented water infrastructure projects, building a more resilient and secure Australia.Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Michael McCormack said the Federal Government was investing $75.7 million towards an additional four new construction projects.“This will deliver increased water security, build resilience in our regions, deliver jobs and grow our critical agriculture sector,” the Deputy Prime Minister said.“This ongoing investment in water infrastructure builds on the eight construction projects already completed since our establishment of the National Water Grid Authority in late 2019, bringing the total number of construction projects in the investment pipeline to 30.”The new and augmented construction projects being funded in partnership with states include:Eurobodalla Southern Storage (New South Wales) – $51.2 million.Werribee Irrigation District Modernisation (Victoria) – $11.0 million.Recycled Water on the Bellarine (Victoria) – $5.5 million.Warwick Recycled Water for Agriculture (Queensland) – $0.5 million.An additional $7.5 million for Rookwood Weir ($183.6 million in total) to enhance our existing investment in delivering water security in north Queensland by raising the weir wall a further 700 millimetres, which will yield an additional 10,000 megalitres of water.This builds on recent announcements, including $22.3 million towards the development of eight business cases for water infrastructure projects, as well as a new funding pathway, the National Water Grid Connections, which will drive the construction of smaller-scale projects over the next two years.The Deputy Prime Minister said the 2021-22 Budget would continue to help increase water security in areas where extensive irrigated agriculture already exists, while also helping to unlock new agricultural regions, especially in Australia’s north.“We are delivering on building bigger water infrastructure and we will also deliver on the smaller scale infrastructure projects which promote local economic activity and job creation,” the Deputy Prime Minister said.“This is building on progress already underway right across Australia with projects such as Rookwood Weir construction and Urannah Dam business case in Queensland; the commencement of the Phase 2 of the Macalister Irrigation District modernisation project in Victoria and the completion of the business case for the Don Irrigation Scheme in Tasmania.”The Australian Government’s National Water Grid Investment Framework is supporting the development of a long-term pipeline of nationally important water infrastructure investments, backed by the world’s best science. /Public Release.
