Briefing 4 – Barnet to review their staffing contracts

The Future Shape of the Council programme is reviewing outsourced services. The trade unions welcome these reviews and want to ensure they are comprehensive and rigorous so that lessons can be learnt.


1.      The Future Shape of the Council programme should adopt a more comprehensive contract review process based on five criteria – Performance; Impact on the council, service users and staff; Service integration; Contract management and monitoring; and Employment issues.

2.      Each review report should be available to the relevant Committee, managers and trade unions.

An overview report should be prepared drawing together all the lessons learnt together with recommendations.
