To receive the terms of reference of the Sub-Committee as set by the Policy and Resources Committee at its meeting on 24 September 2020.
The Chairman took the opportunity to welcome Susan Pearson and, subject to ratification of his co-option, John Petrie to the Sub-Committee. The Chairman thanked outgoing Members Karina Dostalova and Ben Murphy for their contributions and also thanked Members who continued to serve, given continuity was an important factor in the effective scrutiny of City projects.
Members then considered the terms of reference of the Sub-Committee as set by the Policy and Resources Committee at its meeting on 15 September 2020 and the following points were made.
· The Chairman remined Members that the core purpose of the Sub-Committee was to focus on effective project management – Members should focus on ‘who and how’ when scrutinising projects, not ‘what and why’, the latter approach being within the remit of service committees.
· Members agreed that when the Sub-Committee’s terms of reference where next considered by the Policy and Resources Committee in April 2021 a minimum frequency of meetings of monthly should be made explicit.
RESOLVED, that the terms of reference be received.
