Feedback on 23/24 Budget Setting Process - Economic Development
To provide feedback on this year’s budget setting process.
The Committee was invited to provide feedback to Officers on the budget setting process for 2023/24.
The Chief Accountant reported on changes from last year, such as bringing the budget setting process forward to enable Members to review service plans at their September committee meetings and providing sufficient time to discuss the budgets fully at the January meetings. Ongoing changes to the Centros finance system should also improve budget setting next year.
The Chief Accountant requested consensus feedback from the Committee and was particularly interested to receive any recommendations for improving the budget setting process.
The Committee resolved to note the discussion.
