Gateway Approval Process

To note the Gateway Approval process.


Members considered the updated Project Gateway process and the following points were made.


·         The Chairman noted that a costed risk provision for projects would be introduced from April 2019 to align with wider budget setting within the City of London Corporation. In the meantime, risk provision would be considered on a project-by-project basis.


·         The Chairman added that progress of the Project Management Academy continued apace, and that he would request a formal update from the Director of Human Resources at the February 2019 meeting of the Sub-Committee.


·         The Chairman continued, noting that the governance threshold for capital projects had not been reviewed in at least a decade and that a review could therefore be considered timely. Any review would need to be conducted across the whole organisation, rather than once department in particular.


·         In response to a question, the Chairman confirmed that any review of governance thresholds for projects would not affect the remit of the Capital Buildings Committee.


·         In response to a question, the Town Clerk confirmed that projects were still ranked in terms of Light, Regular and Complex and that future Project Gateway process organograms submitted to Sub-Committee would reflect this.


RESOLVED, that the Project Gateway Process be received.
