What’s next for the Service Improvement & Finance Performance Panel?

The Service Improvement and Finance Scrutiny Performance Panel is meeting on 12 November at 1.30pm – in the Chamber Meeting Room, Civic Centre.

This month they are meeting with Councillor Jennifer Raynor, Cabinet Member for Education. She will give the Panel an up-date on progress towards achieving savings targets within the Education portfolio and her views on whether there are any areas of concern or any significant issues in relation to the education budget, before taking questions from the panel.

Also on their agenda this month is the Mid-Term Budget Statement. The Panel will hear from Mike Hawes (Head of Finance and Delivery) and the report will assist the panel to  understand the latest position with regard to the 2014/15 budget together with an initial assessment of the 2015/16 funding position, i.e. how much money the Council expects to have available to spend next year.

This is also reported to Council; however the scrutiny meeting will provide councillors with a chance to look at the report in more depth and will help them prepare for scrutiny of the draft budget for 2015/16, which will dominate their work in the new year.

If you are interested in attending the meeting please get in touch with the Scrutiny Team on 01792 636292 or scrutiny@swansea.gov.uk .
