Finance Committee's Forward Plan

Report of the Chamberlain.


The Committee received a Report of the Chamberlain outlining the workplan for the next eight months.


A Member queried whether there should be a Capital Projects Update Report in February 2022, to continue the bimonthly frequency (updates are due in October and December 2021). The Chamberlain responded that whilst discussions around capital project spending for the 2022/23 financial year should be concluded by that point, Members would be kept updated as to the final outcomes.


A Member asked about the delay to the delivery time for the audit. The Chairman and the Chamberlain confirmed that the delays were caused by resourcing issues with our auditors; whilst this was clearly unsatisfactory, this was an industry wide problem and officers would continue in their efforts to seek a positive resolution.


RESOLVED – that the Committee noted the Report.
