“ CAPITAL MONITORING REPORT FOR THE PERIOD 1ST APRIL TO 31ST DECEMBER 2014 (MD) –

 

Details of the financial progress on the Capital Programme was shown in Appendices 1 and 2 to the report.

 

The Head of Finance referred Members to paragraphs 6 to 22 of the covering report, which contained a summary of progress up to 31st December 2014 for individual Capital Programmes.

 

The report also highlighted that where schemes had a value of over £500,000 and showed a variance of 20% or more between the actual spend and the profiled budget, further information would be provided.  The following schemes met this criteria:

  • Ysgol Gwaun y Nant / Oakfield – amendments to programming / sequencing of works had resulted in actual expenditure that was less than the initial spend profile.  This did not adversely affect the final cost of the project.
  • In respect of the Welsh Housing Quality Standards works, there was likely to be a variance in the expenditure as the extent of the works required in a property was not known until the works commenced.  More had been spent than was projected on Kitchen Replacements, Bathrooms and Asbestos Management.
