5.14 Evidence on which the decision is based


All the evidence relevant to the determination of questions upon which material facts are based must be referred to.  It is sufficient that the evidence or other material be referred to, not set out formally, but references should be sufficiently clear for persons affected to identify the material.  This can be done by identifying either the source or the nature of the references (whichever is more informative).

In determinations of applications for assistance the two main categories of evidence are the application and supporting evidence provided by the applicant and the evidence from the DSH investigation.

Where evidence or other material put before a decision maker is conflicting, the reasons for preferring one item of evidence over another should be stated.
