Approval of Delegations under the Second Inter-Authority Agreement for the Municipal Year 2017/18

Minutes:

The Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham Joint Waste Manager submitted a report stating that one of the contractual documents entered into between the Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham Local Authorities at financial close of the BDR Waste PFI project was an Inter-Authority Agreement (IAA). This IAA creates the Joint Waste Board (“JWB”) as a joint committee pursuant to Section 101(5) of the Local Government Act 1972, which is established as part of the joint working arrangements between the Local Authorities for the management and administration of what are termed Relevant Contracts under the IAA. At the date of today’s meeting, the BDR Waste PFI Contract is the only Relevant Contract to which the IAA applies and is referred to as the “Principal Contract”.

 

The submitted report detailed how the functions of this Joint Waste Board will be delegated down to the BDR Steering Committee and the BDR Manager in order to deal more efficiently with the day-to-day decisions that will be required under the Principal Contract. All decisions of the JWB, BDR Steering Committee and the BDR Manager will be made in accordance with the provisions of the prevailing Inter-Authority Agreement.

 

Agreed:- (1) That the report be received and its contents noted.

 

(2) That the Joint Waste Board notes that:-

 

(a) with the exception of the decisions reserved to the Local Authorities for a unanimous decision under the Inter-Authority Agreement, all other decisions in respect of the Principal Contract are delegated by the Joint Waste Board to the Authorised BDR Steering Committee Member;

 

(b) the Authorised BDR Steering Committee Member may elect to delegate certain decisions to the BDR Manager;

 

(c) the BDR Manager may delegate any decisions delegated to them to a member of the Joint Waste Team (if the right to delegate is granted by the Authorised BDR Steering Committee Member); and
