Funding for the Learning Management System


To approve the funding request from Cambridgeshire Constabulary for the Learning Management System

Decision Summary

The Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner’s (PCC) Business Coordination Board (“board”) meeting on 22nd January 2016 considered and approved the proposal for a single collaborative IT system for Finance, Human Resources, Learning and Development and Duties Management, across Bedfordshire Police, Cambridgeshire Constabulary, and Hertfordshire Constabulary. See Decision Notice CPCC 2016-004.

The 2016/17 Capital Programme included £624k for Cambridgeshire’s share of a tri-force capital scheme to purchase a joint Enterprise Resource Planning system (ERP), following the approval of the business case by the three PCCs and the three Chief Constables. The approved business case included the purchase of a Learning Management System (“LMS”), however the figure entered into the Capital Programme omitted the budget for this part of the system.

Following the approval of the purchase of the LMS solution by the Organisational Support Board, an addition to the 2016/17 Capital Programme of £56k (Cambs’ share) is to be proposed to the PCC which is to be funded, in line with the rest of the ERP budget, from the Budget Assistance Reserve.

Following a meeting of the PCC’s board on the 16th December 2016, the board discussed and agreed to the additional funding of £56k for the LMS from the Budget Assistance Reserve.
