Any Other Business that the Chairman Considers Urgent


Officers drew the Sub-Committee’s attention to the following:


·         Catering Contract – Officers were concerned that 6 months after the contract had commenced, the new contract had yet to be formally signed off owing to unresolved issues in respect of TUPE, Insurance and other matters to mitigate. Sub-Committee Members were concerned that this was not a satisfactory situation   and sought clarification on what action was being taken to mitigate against the associated risks. 


·         Recruitment Update – Officers reported that


(a)  The ongoing leave of absence of an Assistant Director together with an Assistant Director vacancy was creating challenges in managing workloads.  However, in close liaison with HR, it was anticipated that this situation would be resolved within the next 6 months. 

(b)  Andrew Lenihan had been appointed as the Head of Accounts Payable


·         International Women’s Day – the Sub-Committee was advised that Karen Moorhouse from the City Procurement Team won the 2018 Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply’s (CIPS) Young Procurement Professional of the Year.  Karen was also featured in a CIPS International Women’s Day ‘shout out about your success’ campaign video.
