Employment of and payment for counsel under A&A: prior authority required

You must get our specific prior authority for an increase in authorised expenditure to employ counsel either to obtain an opinion or to conduct proceedings under ABWOR.   You cannot simply delegate work to counsel within either the initial limit of authorised expenditure or a further authorised limit of expenditure where you find yourself with sufficient funds (either within a template or an increase granted for another purpose).
