Decision Maker: Strata Joint Executive Committee
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: No
The report of the Director responsible for Finance was submitted advising that Strata had been given a total of £6,104,000 to run the IT Services in 2017/18 along with funding for various capital projects. The 2017/18 Business Plan had revised the savings profile set out in the original Business Cases over the initial ten year period of the Company.
The report set out a suggested change to the original method of funding agreed at the inception of the company and the pros and cons of this new system compared with the existing were set out. It was noted that the Strata Board wished to focus on improving service further rather than implementing a new charging system.
Members discussed the issue of how Strata was funded, they agreed that the status quo should remain for 2018/19 and that a paper be brought to the Joint Executive Committee outlining the funding options and the implications for the individual Councils and Strata.
Strata Joint Scrutiny Committee considered the report at its meeting on 30 November 2017 and its comments were reported.
(1) the report be noted; and
(2) a new charging policy not be introduced at this stage but a paper be brought forward with funding options for Strata with implications for the Councils and Strata.
