Governance Arrangements of the Public Services Board pdf icon PDF 174 KB

·         Rob Stewart – Chair of the Public Services Board

·         Clive Lloyd – Cabinet Member for Business Transformation & Performance (PSB Lead)

Additional documents:


·         Panel asked whether the any members of the board had refused to provide information as per 4.4C of the Swansea PSB Partnership Manual – request in letter

·         There are statutory duties regarding membership set up

·         Substantial work has been undertaken to get to this point including development of the well-being plan and the setup of sub-groups which are at different stages

·         The development of the well-being plan itself shows that the board can come to agreements informally and work together – decisions are debated and overcome

·         There is a risk chart which has been developed to monitor any risks

·         Observed that much of the risk is with the partners who deliver and the PSB risk is more limited to reputation and success

·         There has been good attendance and buy in to the PSB at senior levels

·         Some comments around the involvement of some partners in multiple PBS as they cover multiple local authority areas – this may be unsustainable

·         There is a lot of good work being done around greener environments and biodiversity

·         Swansea has been used as a good example of actions and monitoring which implies peer acknowledgment

·         Swansea provides the lead support but it is becoming more shared e.g. fire service funding a Local Area Co-ordinator

·         It is a preventative agenda so there is still lots to be done

·         Lack of financial and personnel commitment to PSBs

·         Citizens and not budgets should come first

·         Must avoid working which is being undertaken by other regional consortia

·         No indication at the moment of pooled budgets
