Report of the Commissioner.
This report was scrutinised by the Performance and Resource Management Committee at its meeting on 21 June 2019.
Members considered a report of the Commissioner regarding Budget Monitoring for Month 2 2019/20 and the following points were made.
· The Commissioner noted that there was a conversation to be had regarding the affordability of the Force workforce, given that the current establishment was working with a vacancy rate which brought with it significant pressures.
· In response to a question, the Chief Operating and Chief Financial Officer noted that the report had not been prepared on an accruals basis. She would review the format of the report ahead of the September 2019 meeting, taking into account further comments from Members regarding the potential to include data such as variance, and a format that readily provided detail on the year-to-date position against the agreed budget.
RESOLVED, that the report be received.
