What is the review about?
The PAC is reviewing the building of the new Police Station, from the date of the decision to site it at Green Street to its formal opening. It has gathered evidence from external consultants on the build and will hold a public hearing with members of the project team on 19th June 2017.
Terms of reference
Making the right decisions in the right way is the key to securing value for money.
The States of Jersey agreed P.92/2012 in November 2012, setting out the proposed development of the new Police Station in Green Street. Most of the personnel are to transfer in March 2017, with an official opening date for the Station set for June 2017. The PAC wanted to determine whether the project delivered on all that was envisaged by the States Assembly, whether it delivered value for money in a timely manner, and what lessons could be learnt for the benefit of future capital projects.
The review will scrutinise:
- overall governance arrangements for the project
- the identification of the need for external support
- the project's cost effectiveness and value for money, including whether corporate standards were applied to determining the size of office and desk space; and
- overall project management and post-project evaluation.
The review will not extend to considering whether the new Police Station should have been built, nor will it be able to investigate whether concerns over parking facilities or traffic congestion have been realised. These latter aspects could form part of a future review in 2020.
