A CIPFA disciplinary committee has expelled former Vale of Glamorgan chief executive David Foster nearly two years after he was sacked from the council.
Mr Foster was dismissed from the accountancy body after being found guilty of 36 cases of gross misconduct (LGC, 14 July 2000) but failed to quit CIPFA.
The committee found there had been a breach of CIPFA's standard of professional practice on ethics and expelled him.
Mr Foster issued unlawful payments and authorised invoices for expenses in connection with party political conferences, said a CIPFA statement.
The statement added: 'Mr Foster failed to provide important financial information to the council relevant to its decision as to whether to proceed with a major project for the redevelopment of a local listed building and gardens as a hotel.'
