5. …. the need for change Implement changes to the current structure required to address significant issues: –Service Management / Service Management processes –Service Desk Ownership –Programme / Project Management – Customer Focus and Delivery The intention of this re-organisation is to address the performance issues and inefficiencies within Service Management and Programme Management. This restructure does not address the long term resource requirements which may change due to the implementation of the ICT Transformation Programme during 2010 /11 This re-organisation is NOT a cost cutting exercise.
6. ….. role diagram key Role Deleted – roles where the work in existing roles has ceased to exist and does not exist in the new roles within the new structure. Role Selection – either a) these existing roles do not appear to map exactly into any of the new roles but contain significant elements of the existing role or b) there are a limited number of roles available. Selection into these roles will be by competency interview Restructured Role – these roles appear to map into a new role within the new structure. Role Unchanged – there is no impact on these roles within the new structure. New Role – these are newly created roles within the new structure.

8. Service Management – Overview of Changes The move of the Service Desk and Telephony to IT Services from Library Services has highlighted the problems around control of First Line and Second Line support services. In the current Service Management structure the focus has been on application support rather than on user support. The new structure moves Application Support to the newly formed Programme Management structure together with Application Development. Within the Service Management area we have moved all our Technicians (AV and Desktop) forming a new role of IT Technician who can then work closely with the Service Desk to provide a solid first and second line support structure under a new role of Head of Service and Support. In addition, new Business Account Manager roles have been created to form the interface between IT and the Business areas. These are technically able, business system focused individuals with specific application skills. The introduction of system monitoring tools will enable us to control and monitor system more effectively and efficiently. We have also introduced the post of Problem & Transition Manager to improve our overall service levels.

11. Operation – Overview of Changes In this area we are gearing up for the major infrastructure changes that will take place during 2010/11. Whilst we cannot anticipate the requirements in this area at this point in time the team has been refocused on supporting the operations and dual data-centres which will be implemented during this period. The Desktop and AV support teams have been moved into Service Management to leave a ‘clean’ Operations structure which will focus on the Data Centre support going forward. The new role of Head of Operations and Data Centres has been created.

14. Programme Management – Overview of Changes Significant changes in this area will be implemented as we form the Programme Management Office (PMO) and bring together Programme Management and Application Development / Support teams. PMO established to support the delivery of projects, manage the portfolio of demand/requests, resource availability and capacity. The PMO will create a number of new roles, namely PMO Manager and Project Coordinators to manage small work requests and small projects. Application Development and Support are currently separate teams in separate areas of the organisation and this leads to major delays in both development and support activities. We have restructured these teams to form a single team which will develop and support applications going forward under a new role of Applications Manager. In addition, moving this team to the Programme Management team makes it easier for projects to access the relevant resource. Major benefits are perceived by the strengthening of the Architecture team by the creation two new roles of Architect & Design Manager and Chief Architect. Currently this area is under resourced and is one of the primary causes for project delay. Our test area also needs strengthening and this has been done by the introduction of new Test Analyst roles which will enable coherent test plans and ensure successful delivery of systems.

22. Ground Rules The proposed IT Services restructure will be managed using the ground rules for Appointment of Staff to Revised Staffing Structures. Business as usual during the transitional phase – expect the proposed new structure to be operational by end of June Directly affected staff will have priority for posts within proposed new structure. Wherever possible we will appoint senior posts first. We recognise staff may be unsure at any one time whether a future vacancy may be more attractive therefore if staff already slotted in / appointed to post they are welcome to apply for future vacancies that may arise when / if advertised.
23. Ground Rules Directly affected staff are displaced when a new post(s) created in the new structure potentially displaces their existing role; Members of staff will be mapped against the new post(s) and if there is a clear match between the existing and new posts i.e. at least 75% they will be slotted in if there are sufficient posts. Where this no clear match between existing and new posts or less posts than people, members of staff will be invited to participate in a competitive recruitment process. If a member of staff is unsuccessful in being mapped into a position or at a ringfenced interview they would be displaced and informed as such. All directly affected staff will be placed on the Advance Redeployment list. Members of staff will have an opportunity to express interest in Voluntary Severance. The University will provide support for those who are potentially displaced. Candidates will be appointed to proposed new posts based on merit.
24. Voluntary Severance Require 2 years continuous service to be eligible. Payments offered by the University represent lump sum payments to the value of twice the statutory redundancy payment, based on employee’s weekly pay. For each completed year of continuous service the following will apply: –Service between ages of 18 – 20 – one weeks’ pay. –Service between ages of 21 – 41 – two weeks’ pay. –Service over the age of 41 – three weeks pay. Maximum twenty years service is reckonable. Tax free up to £30,000. Compromise agreement to be signed.
25. Voluntary Severance Approval of Voluntary Severance applications - at management discretion. Voluntary Severance payments will be in line with payments made under Headroom. VS register will open on 24 March VS register will close on 8 April Figures will be sent out to staff by 13 April Apply on-line after 24 March 2010 via the HR intranet page. Contact Andrew Brown (HR Advisor) on or Rachel Nield (Pensions Officer) on if you have any queries about this matter.

Timescales / Consultation Impacted staff to update job descriptions & submit for verification – 6 April –Current JD’s available electronically from Christine Tyler –Return to Christine asap and before 6 th. April 2010 Aim to verify job descriptions by 9 April Aim to meet all directly affected staff to discuss mapping and VS outcomes by 30 April Subsequent dates regarding ringfenced interviews will be published if appropriate by 3 May Trade Unions invited to attend any further briefings.
