Minutes:

The Committee considered a report of the Executive Director (Finance and Resources) presenting an update on the progress made in delivering the work required in respect of the special educational needs and disability (SEND) passenger transport provision provided by Vecteo and a summary overview of the findings of the work that has been undertaken, including the main themes and the key actions planned to improve the current service and to ensure improvements for any such service delivery vehicles used in the future.

 

During consideration of the matter, the Committee resolved to exclude the public and press from the meeting (confidential session) to enable questions and comments to be raised on the financial and commercial aspects of the matter, including an overview of a range of options.

 

The Committee came back into the public session for general questions, comments and the decision.

 

Resolved:

 

1. That the following matters be noted:

 

(i) The progress made in delivering the review work required in respect of the SEND passenger transport contract;

(ii) The overview of the findings of the work that has been undertaken; and

(iii) The progress that has been made with the Council’s arrangements for working with Vecteo.
