To recommend approval and introduction of the fuel card policy (report of the Portfolio Holder for Environmental Services and the Assistant Director – Neighbourhoods enclosed).

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Consideration was given to the report of the Portfolio Holder for Environmental Services and the Assistant Director – Neighbourhoods, which recommended approval and introduction of the fuel card policy.

 

DECISION:

 

That adoption of the proposed Fuel Card Policy be approved.

 

(Other options considered:

·         Do nothing.  By not adopting the policy, SHDC does not support staff and provide them a policy which outlines their responsibilities.  This lack of clarity risks misunderstanding and misuse.

Reasons for decision:

·         Purchasing fuel is essential for delivery of our frontline services. Ensuring that our fuel is purchased in a convenient and financially safe way is crucial to keeping those services running and that council spend is transparent and appropriate.

·         The policy clearly details the ways that a policy can mitigate potential risks and possible fraud opportunities).
