Decision status: Recommendations Approved
The Committee discussed the available options. The Covid 19 emergency had highlighted the disparate range of ICT devices used by Councillors and the difficulty for a small number of Councillors in accessing the new ICT platforms that were established to allow for the democratic process to continue. Option 1 was the preferred choice with point 4 being omitted.
The following amendment was moved by Councillor M Radulovic and seconded by Councillor T Hallam:
Option 1 be adopted with point 4 omitted. An additional line be added stating there be annual reviews of new technology/licenses.
The amendment was carried.
1) The procurement of the appropriate module for the Committee Management System to allow for secure remote access to Section 12 documents goes ahead.
2) Option 1 be adopted with point 4 omitted and an annual review of new technology/licenses to be included.
3) It be recommended to the Finance and Resources Committee to include £45,000 in the 2020/21 capital programme as outlined to be funded by a carry forward of £45,500 from2019/20.
