The Council will include a buy back provision at Auction if the tenant vacates and the site is not developed within 3 years so to protect the Councils commercial position.
The authority to agree the private treaty price and auction reserve is to be delegated to the Interim Director of Economy

•Management and performance information would be provided to Managers and Senior Leaders and OFSTED
•Oldham would be compliant with PSN
•A barrier to the delivery of the ICT Strategy would be removed
•There would be no need for any significant investment in training as it is software that is current being used
•The upgraded version of Business Objects could be used to report from the Education System Synergy which would improve the access to Management Information
•It is potentially possible for the Business Objects to be used for reports from other database systems
•Oldham would retain rights to future upgrades of Business Objects which would be supported by a robust contractual arrangement
