Purpose of Report The purpose of this report is to present an Improvement Action Plan for Use of Resources. Background At its meeting of 29th October, Audit Committee received a report from the Council’s external auditors, Grant Thornton, on the outcomes of our 2009 Use of Resources Audit, part of the Comprehensive Area Assessment (CAA). This confirmed Manchester’s score as Level 2: Performing Adequately. The Council has a clearly stated ambition of improving its Use of Resources assessment in 2010, with an ultimate ambition of securing Level 4 performance (performing excellently). The auditors report recognises that significant progress had been made in several areas, including the development of strategic financial and business planning, helping to ensure that resources are targeted to the Council’s priority areas. However, the report also highlighted a number of key areas of development that the Council must focus on if it is to meet its challenging ambition. To this end, an improvement action plan for Use of Resources has been developed, setting out activity aimed at achieving an improved score. Development of an action plan In order to improve the Council’s Use of Resources score next year, one of the fundamental issues is to demonstrate consistency and embeddedness of performance against all Key Line of Enquiry (KLOE) areas. It is recognised that this is happening in some areas already, but others require strengthening. As such, an action plan has been developed in order to manage this improvement process and ensure that our ambition and potential can be reached effectively. The final improvement action plan is attached at Appendix A. The development of this has been led by the SMT Sub Group for Use of Resources, in consultation with KLOE leads. The action plan is based on feedback received from Grant Thornton following the 2009 audit process. It picks up on issues that the 2009 audit identified as needing to be strengthened in order to be able to demonstrate improved performance. Through the action plan, there is a focus on embedding activity and processes and demonstrating achievement of improvements consistently across the Council, reflecting the findings of the audit report.
