Overview and Scrutiny Budget

Meeting: 31/03/2014 - Overview and Performance Committee (Item 650)

Overview and Scrutiny Budget

The current balance stands at £8 500.  Officers will report any additional expenditure at the meeting.

Minutes:

The Committee agreed that data collection by Hertfordshire University would be more useful for the Social Infrastructure Scrutiny Reviews. Objective data was needed which the Councillors could then interpret. £6000 was considered too costly for the Transport research as that could be undertaken without external assistance. The proposed researcher, a County Councillor, had the required academic experience so would be suitable. Conflict of interest was unlikely as this was a data, not policy, project and the supplier was the University of Hertfordshire.

 

RESOLVED that the remainder of the 2013/14 budget be spent on the University of Hertfordshire’s research for the Social Infrastructure Scrutiny Review, any additional money to come from the 2014/15 budget.
