Decision:

That the council does not trigger the 5 year break clause as set out in the existing 10 year shared service agreement for the provision of legal services by One Legal.

Reasons for the decision:

On 1st April 2015 the council (together with Tewkesbury Borough Council and Cheltenham Borough Council) entered into a 10 year shared service arrangement for the provision of legal services by One Legal. The agreement gives the partner councils an opportunity to terminate the arrangement in year 5 by giving 12 months’ notice (the break clause).

 

The One Legal Joint Management and Liaison Group (JMLG) undertook a service review to consider whether notice should be given to terminate the existing agreement by exercising the break clause. A copy of their report is appended to this decision.

 

JMLG’s recommendation to the partner councils was to continue with the agreement for the full term.

 

Alternative options considered:

To terminate the arrangement in year 5 by serving 12 months’ notice.
