Type of decision: 
Mayoral decision
Code: 
MD1313
Date signed: 
14 February 2014
Decision by: 
Boris Johnson MP (past staff), Mayor of London

Executive summary

A restructuring proposal was put forward for the Greater London Authority’s (GLA) Facilities Management (FM) team in September 2013. It was agreed that one element of that proposal – outsourcing the City Hall Night Time Security Service – be subject to further analysis. That work has now been completed and the Mayor is being asked to approve the commencement of a tendering process. A further Mayoral decision would be sought should, following the evaluation of the tenders received, an officer recommendation be made to outsource the function. Additionally, any proposal to delete posts from the GLA’s staffing establishment would be a decision of the GLA’s Head of Paid Service, following consultation with the Mayor and the London Assembly.
