Is Key decision?: No
A report was presented by Paul Bond, Head of Legal and Democratic Services, providing an updated Quarter 1 Corporate Risk and Opportunity Register for the Cabinet Committee to consider and comment upon.
The Committee noted that the Register had been aligned to the Annual Governance Statement and that it was the primary means of reporting progress for the main issues raised within the Statement.
It was reported that there were several new entries, re-worked entries and deletions to the Register and details of these were provided to the Committee.
· CR1.1 – 'Establishing a strong and visible leadership team' - one of the main focusses was on employing a new Chief Executive and Executive Director of Children's Services.
· CR1.2 – 'Embed a focus on service delivery to secure a better service at a lower cost' - each service is undertaking a service challenge and mid-point review meetings were being scheduled.
· CR5 - 'Managing our data well and producing effective management information' was a re-worked entry to the Register and related to data in both Adult Services and Children's Services.
· CR7 - 'Delivering major projects/schemes on time and within budget' was a new entry to the Register and the Committee noted that initial review work had been undertaken of a sample of major capital schemes to improve the estimating and testing of current and future scheme costs. Governance arrangements had also been improved to provide structured challenge.
The Committee noted that the updated Corporate Risk and Opportunity Register would be presented to the Audit, Risk and Governance Committee on 30th July 2018.
Resolved: That the Cabinet Committee on Performance Improvement note the updated Corporate Risk and Opportunity Register.
