Minutes:

The Director of Children, Education & Communities presented a report which proposed the main terms on which the council would let a new contract to Make it York (MIY) for the period 2018-21, following the end of the current 3 year contract on 31 March 2018.

 

Officers had reviewed the first three years of operation and a summary of their findings was attached as Annex 1. This showed that the model had proved successful, while indicating a number of learning points, as set out in paragraph 5.  In the light of this, it was recommended that a service specification, or service level agreement (SLA) be drawn up to reflect the council’s lead role in a new economic and cultural model.  The role of MIY would be to deliver the council’s commission primarily through working with others. 

 

This new approach was detailed in paragraphs 6 to 27 of the report.  An alternative option was to seek alternative delivery mechanisms; this was not recommended, in view of the success of the current model and the cost of dismantling the model.

 

Members broadly welcomed the report and the additional clarity that would be provided by the SLA.

 

Resolved:  (i)      That approval be given to enter into a further 3 year contact with Make it York.

 

                   (ii)      That the priorities on which the new service specification will be based, as set out in paragraph 16 and following, be approved.

 

                   (iii)     That further work be undertaken to develop the outcomes and service levels schedule of the contract (the SLA) and that this be brought back to the Executive Member for Economic Development and Community Engagement for approval.

 

Reason:     To take forward the success of the first three years of operation, while addressing the learning points that have emerged from the review.
