This report requests Cabinet Member approval
to allocate £154K from the Feasibility Reserve, to support
the funding for the initial two years of a permanent G11 and G8
post at the total cost of £154K.
That the Cabinet Member for Corporate Services and Budget approves the sum of £154K being allocated from the Corporate Feasibility Assessment Reserve to progress Option 2 (section 6b) to fund the two permanent G11 and G8 Facilities Budget Monitoring Officers posts within Corporate Property over 2 years.
To move forward with the required funding so that Corporate Property can secure the two permanent G11 and G8 Facilities Budget Monitoring Officer posts to progress the arrangements to identify and capture the required efficiencies whilst taking in to account the Council’s financial, climate change, social housing, thriving communities and staff recruitment and retention strategies.
Option 1 - Do Nothing.
The Council would be lacking the staff resource to identify and capture the required efficiencies for monitoring and reporting in the required holistic approach rather than the dispersed and incomplete arrangements currently being undertaken.
Option 2 - Securing the two G11 and G8 Facilities Budget Monitoring Officers within Corporate Property at the total cost of £154K over 2 years with the posts being self funded through savings thereafter.
This provides Corporate Property with the required staff resource to identify and capture the efficiencies to allow the holistic approach to the monitoring of the budgeting of the estate on an asset by asset or per Service and Directorate basis.
