Residual Waste Project - Value for Money Affordability Analysis

At its meeting on 23 January 2019, the Committee noted that the Audit and Governance Committee would be receiving a report on 25 January 2019 from the External Auditor relating to this matter.

 

Members agreed that OSMC should lead on any scrutiny of this due to the Committee’s ‘cross-cutting’ remit and asked that it be an item for March 2019.

 

Since the last Overview and Scrutiny Management Committee, Grant Thornton have put on hold completing their Value for Money report in view of the live legal challenge of the County Council about the procurement process for Javelin Park.

 

The Chief Executive will update the committee on this matter.

 

Information published on Energy from Waste Facility (Javelin Park), including the Ernst and Young Money and Affordability Analysis, can be viewed at the link below:

It would be helpful if members would email in detailed questions arising from the performance reports in advance of the meeting. This will enable officers to have prepared responses and also better support the committee’s debate on these matters.

 

The committee needs to consider:-

 

Do these reports demonstrate that the council is on target to achieve the council’s aims/ priorities?

 

Have resources been targeted appropriately?

 

Are these areas of low performance that the committee feel would benefit from more detailed analysis?

 

Are there any particular areas that the committee want to refer elsewhere?

 

Members will find it helpful to refer to the Council Strategy when considering these reports:
