Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

On 9 July 2015 the City Executive Board resolved to GRANT delegated authority to the Executive Director of Organisational Development and Corporate Services to award a new temporary agency staff contract.

Decisions:

The Head of Business Improvement submitted a report (previously circulated now appended) which detailed proposals for a temporary agency staff contract available for use by Oxfordshire Councils, following the current contract coming to an end.

 

The Head of Business Improvement and Technology presented the report explaining that it was a straightforward retender exercise for an existing contract arrangement. 

 

The Board noted and welcomed the initiatives in place to reduce the level of agency staff employed by the Council but recognised that external factors such as the high cost of living and property prices in the city presented a challenge to the recruitment and retention of permanent staff.
