OASys Assessments

The NEC need to establish the number of outstanding OASys assessments in each establishment. There is an urgent need for this information as failure to complete these documents represents a significant risk to the organisation and public safety.

NOMS have identified this issue and at present are unable to provide the union with data to clarify the extent of this problem.

The NEC are also aware that Governors are redeploying Band 4s (SO/OS) to cover work outside of the profiles/job descriptions and this may be exacerbating the problem.

In order to assist the NEC in seeking a resolution to this issue, could we ask that you seek the information required to complete the attached form from your OMU CM/Hub Manager as soon as possible and return your completed form to Debbie Davis, Secretary to BDG Group at Cronin House by email to debbie@poauk.org.uk no later than Friday 11th April 2014.

Your assistance in supplying this information is essential, thank you for your co-operation and support.

Yours sincerely



General Secretary
