Notes:

·         No access to establishment lists for HPCH – Staffing numbers before this date are therefore based on the number of staff transferred back to the Council in May 2013

·         Outsourced contract figures based upon numbers of staff transferred – where the contracts are still live contractors have been asked to provide details of numbers  

 

Transfer of functions:

·         July 2008 – Waste Collection transferred to Veolia - 45 staff transferred

·         August 2008 – Leisure Centre Management transferred to PfP - 74 staff transferred

·         October 2009 - Facilities Management transferred to DCC - 15 staff transferred

·         October 2010 - ICT transferred to Northgate – 3 staff transferred

·         May 2013 – HPCH ALMO dissolved - 134 staff transferred to HPBC

·         August 2017 – Waste Collection transferred to AES - 51 staff transferred

 

Joint Working through Strategic Alliance:

·         Strategic Alliance with Staffordshire Moorlands commenced in 2008

·         Joint services were developed from July 2009 onwards

·         Staff numbers are those employed by HPBC with no apportionment of time between HPBC and SMDC”

 

In response to a supplementary question the Portfolio Holder stated that the conventions of the Alliance were that staff stay with their original employer if they were working for the Council at the time the Alliance teams were formed.   When new staff have been appointed the convention has been to try and allocate their time between the two authorities.
