The Interim Service Director - Finance presented a report asking members to approve the Business Plan 2021/22 for the Operational Services Division (OSD) Direct Services Organisation (DSO).
The Business Plan for 2021/22 and the current estimated outturn for year-end were detailed in Appendix A of the officer’s report.
Under the current arrangements the costs of providing operational services were accounted for separately as a trading account and charges made to customers in receipt of those services. These arrangements would continue in 2021/22.
From 2022/23, however, it was proposed that the costs for service delivery be directly charged to portfolios, which would negate the requirement to keep a separate trading account and eliminate the need for the current accounting arrangements. This change to the accounting arrangements would not impact on the overall financial position of the General Fund.
1. That the Operational Services Department DSO Business Plan forecast for 2021/22 be approved.
2. That the proposal to move to new accounting arrangements from 2022/23 be noted.
