Decisions of the PCC - October 2019

Decision Reference Number Decision Title Decision Summary Date Authorised 
2019-171342 Funding - MFC Kicks 2019/20

Middlesbrough Football Club (MFC) Foundation launched Kicks in 2006 which is a national initiative funded by the Premier League that uses football and the brand of a professional football club to engage 8 to 18 year olds in deprived areas.

MFC Foundation have requested funding to continue the delivery of the Kicks Programme in Middlesbrough, Stockton and Redcar and Cleveland.

Many of the young people who attend are at risk of offending, or are known offenders. The benefits of the deliverables hope to include a reduction in youth crime and antisocial behaviour in the targeted areas and an increase in community cohesion.

2019-171388 Funding - Rifty Youth Project 2019

The Rifty Youth Project (RYP) in Hartlepool runs a free youth club for young people aged between 6-17 years provided a safe place for young people to play and socialise whilst aiming to tackle antisocial behaviour. The Project also runs a community facility 7 days a week working with local residents to provide advice and guidance and arranged community events to bring the local community together.

The RYP have requested funding to support youth club activities and community events particularly over October half term where there is a risk of higher antisocial behaviour. In previous years the youth club has attracted over 300 young people and the community events over 1,000 residents.

2019-176616 Investment in Enterprise Resource Planning System

Appendix - Option 4

In 2010 at the outset of the contract with Sopra Steria, part of the service improvement programme was the upgrading of the existing Origin HR system to Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS), an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system for HR, iRecruitment, iLearning, all aspects of Finance and Procurement which incorporated our Capita Origin Duty Management System (DMS). At an early stage decisions were taken note to progress with some functionality such as iRecruitment and Self Service training course bookings, alternative methods are used for these processes.

The platform is now aged and coming towards the end of its expected useful life and requires significant investment and work to either upgrade or replace. It is not possible to upgrade the software on the current hardware and a project to deliver the required change is necessary to ensure continuity of service and support.

Support from Sopra Steria will end on the 1st October 2020 when the responsibility for IT services transfers back to the Force/PCC and this is being managed as part of that project. In addition to this the current version of Oracle EBS will no longer be fit to receive updates and patched beyond December 2021 resulting in potential security risks alongside organisational risks, in terms of the ability to pay staff and invoices should something go wrong.

A decision is now required in respect of the following options to deliver an extensive 12 month project and to ensure service continuity of an ERP system beyond 2020/2021. This is a programme of work that was anticipated and some budget provision has been made within the Capital budget amounting to £1.5m, in terms of Capital expenditure over 2 years, with a further £632k set aside for the resources required to deliver the project.
