Before the Committee was a report by the Director for Sustainability and Resources, copies of which had been circulated to all Members and a copy of which is attached to the signed copy of these minutes as Item 8.
The Worthing Joint Strategic Sub-Committee (WJSSC) had been asked to receive and consider the findings and recommendations of the Joint Overview and Scrutiny Committee (JOSC) and JOSC Working Group which reviewed the Worthing Cultural Services procurement process that was undertaken in 2019.
The Working Group had considered the evidence and other information presented to it and considered that the externalisation process, including the procurement aspects, were robust and in accordance with the legal requirements of such processes. These findings were approved by JOSC at its meeting on 30 November 2023 and the report and findings are also now referred to this Sub-Committee for its consideration.
Members discussed the report and its findings and noted concerns about continuity of membership on JOSC working groups
1. That the Joint Overview and Scrutiny Committee be thanked for the thorough review
2. That the report and finding of the JOSC working group be noted and that no further response on the matter be issued.
The call-in deadline for the decisions will be 5.00pm on 16 February 2024.
