Minutes:

The Corporate Director of People 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 2021-24.

The report followed measures agreed by Executive on 15 December 2020 to secure the future of MIY in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic (Minute 76 of that meeting refers).  The next steps must now be taken, before the existing contract came to an end on 31 March. The new contract would address a number of issues, including the effects of Covid-19, mitigation of the risk to the council’s investment in MIY, and clarification of governance arrangements.  The option to bring MIY’s functions back in-house was not recommended, due to cost and the broad success of the current model.  Draft priorities for the Service Level Agreement (SLA) were set out in the report and in Appendix A.  It was proposed to consult key stakeholder groups on these over the coming month and bring back final proposals for approval in April.   

The Executive Member for Economy & Strategic Planning welcomed the proposals for a new SLA to address performance and governance issues and encouraged stakeholders to participate in the consultation.  Having noted the comments made on this item under Public Participation, it was

Resolved:  (i)      That the priorities on which the new service specifications are to be based be agreed as set out in paragraph 10 of the report and following.

Reason:     In order to create a closer relationship between the council and MIY, enabling them to work collaboratively with other organisations in the city and make the best use of resources for the benefit of York in the face of the challenges ahead.
