Cabinet received a report of the Chief Executive providing an update on the Transformation to 2019 Programme.
The report was introduced and it was highlighted that progress against the savings targets was good and on target. Cabinet were advised that the on-boarding of the three London Boroughs (Westminster, Kensington and Chelsea, and Hammersmith and Fulham) to the Council’s successful shared service arrangements, was delivered on time and on budget at the beginning of December. The Digital and Productivity programmes had also been successfully implemented across the County Council. With reference to the Transformation to 2021 programme, the importance of completing the current programme was stressed, in order to ensure there would not be a savings legacy to carry forward.
Cabinet welcomed the report and noted the impact of both an ageing population and of increasing numbers of children in care on the pressures being faced by the County Council. It was recognised that Hampshire’s ability to retain capacity had enabled it to deliver programmes such as Digital to achieve savings.
The recommendations in the report were considered and agreed. The decision record is attached.
