The Chief Executive, Directors and Councillors came together on Monday 29 October 2018 for the Council of the Future Board.

The Board heard updates on 2 Council of the Future projects:

  • Payments Review
  • Procurement of the Future

At the meeting it was also noted that both Closer to Home and Bereavement Services Change Fund bids had now been approved, that a bid had been submitted by the SWIS replacement project, and a bid from Digital is expected.

Members of the board were made aware that Services of the Future would be a theme within the 5-year business plans currently being compiled by each service. The theme would help identify, amongst other things, alternative service delivery models and allow parallels to be drawn across services.

A spotlight was then turned onto the Best Value Audit, with Chief Executive Kenneth Lawrie highlighting the need to increase the speed of change.
