Cabinet Member Decisions

Urgent ICM Decision Statement: Approval for the grant acceptance/entering into funding agreement, allocation, and distribution of funds for the Multiply Programme element of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund

In coming to this decision I have given due and full regard to the requirements of the public sector equality duty contained in section 149 of the Equality Act 2010 (“the Act”) by reference to the law itself and also the relevant Equality Impact Assessment, which was prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Act.

Having fully considered all the available information, I have decided to reject the alternative options and take the recommended decision:

To delegate authority to the Executive Director of Economy, Environment and Infrastructure, in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Education, Skills and Bus Transport to:

a) accept the grant and enter into a funding agreement with the DfE (Department for Education)

b) establish a grant funding process for the provision of the services of key stakeholders in line with the Multiply funding guidance to support the delivery of the programme for the duration of the contract.

c) recruit and appoint five new staff members on fixed term contracts to undertake the project management on the delivery of the programme. The cost of which has been included in the investment plan accepted by the DfE.

For the reasons set out in the report.
