Budget Task & Finish Group Identified Opportunities
Report of Executive Director Commercialisation, Christine Marshall.
The Chief Accountant informed Members the report had been created for information on the progress of opportunities that had been considered as requested at the previous meeting of the Overview and Scrutiny Commission. The appendix to the report included a table detailing each opportunity and also where this project was in progress how it would be monitored through existing systems in the future.
The Chairman asked for Members views on how the Committee would monitor the progress. The Chief Accountant reported there were a number of long term projects, however, the Committee requested a report back every 3-months.
Councillor Jermy asked how the Committee could assist the process and feed into it as the principles were not necessarily new and did not want to reinvent the wheel. He suggested to look at best practice across other local authorities and to share it.
The Executive Director for Strategy and Governance said feedback was very important, and the Chairman suggested that any changes to the document were highlighted in red.
