Additional documents:


The Scrutiny & Elections Officer confirmed that final amends had taken place in relation to the timescales for some of the recommendations.  Particularly in relation to the development and adoption of the new Social Value Policy, this was now scheduled for completion in January 2023 to allow sufficient time to integrate with the Procurement Policy and new developments at a national level.  It was also noted that a number of preliminary meetings had taken place to set up the Social Value Working Group.
