Operational Services Department DSO Business Plan 2021/22

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No

Decisions:

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.

 

*RESOLVED –

 

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.

 

REASON FOR DECISIONS

 

To update the Council’s Medium-Term Financial Plan.

 

Reason Key: Decision to spend £100,000 or more from an approved budget;

Wards Affected: (All Wards);
