REFERENCE FROM CABINET: 17TH SEPTEMBER, 2012
C1827 IMPROVEMENT PLAN 2012/13 (L) (SCRUTINY - ALL) -
Cabinet were presented with the final draft of the Improvement Plan 2012/13.
The Plan set out in Appendix 1 to the report, looked at performance and improvement information for all directorates for the 2011/12 financial year. Most of the information was based on the Corporate Plan and departmental service plans. It was intended that the information would be used by the Wales Audit Office in order to assess the Council’s ability to improve. As such, it was extremely important in terms of the reputation of the Council.
Members noted that the Plan was virtually completed, although some performance information was subject to change by the Local Government Data Unit. Final proofreading and pagination must also be completed.
This was a matter for Executive decision.
(1) THAT the improvement Plan for 2012/13 be endorsed.
(2) THAT the Managing Director, in consultation with the Leader, be authorised to finalise the Plan.
(3) THAT the final Plan be referred to Council for endorsement.
Reasons for decisions
(1) To ensure that the actions are taken to improve services for all directorates.
(2&3) To agree the plan for external audit within required timescales.
