West Berkshire Council

Contract Governance - Health and Social Care

Involving elected members where spending on care contracts exceeds £50,000

The Council Executive Committee have requested that a 'member involvement protocol' is created to ensure that members (councillors) can actively participate in decisions about council spending in excess of £50,000.

The protocol is there to make sure that the cost and choice of care options have been appropriately researched in order for a care contract to be signed off.
Compliance with the protocol now forms part of the pdf icon council constitution [138kb].
