The Job Initiative (JI) Team Leaders were assessed on similar Towards 2016 compliance criteria to those used for the Community Employment supervisors. These criteria were formulated by FÃS in conjunction with this Department and with the agreement of the Department of Finance and the union representatives of the Job Initiative team leaders. The criteria, as set out in my earlier reply, encompassed co-operation with the principles concerning public service modernisation and flexibility; industrial relations stability; co-operation with the roll-out of the FÃS Community Services Management (CSM); implementation of quality assurance policies and procedures; and co-operation with ongoing operational and technological change on schemes.
On final evaluation, all relevant Job Initiative projects (i.e. those with a team leader) achieved the requisite compliance level with the requirements for receipt of the Towards 2016 Phase 3 and 4 increases.
