The Committee considered the agenda report which proposed the setting up of a Councillor IT User Group be setup to enable focussed discussions to be held into ongoing Councillor IT provision. The aim is to identify areas where improvements could be made, to identify Councillor IT training needs and to reflect on trends in the IT industry which may be relevant to the work of Local Government.
The proposed Terms of Reference and the attendee compilation was set out at report pages 4 and 6 respectively.
The proposed Terms of Reference and the attendee compilation as set out in the agenda report be approved with the addition of the following:
1. The Group meet every 3 months in the first year.
2. A representative from all three Councils be present at all meetings, and the representatives be authorised to appoint a substitute if unable to attend.
