Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No

Decisions:

Councillor Eamonn O’Brien, the Leader of the Council and Cabinet Member for Finance and Growth, presented the report which summarised the Council’s work to establish the foundations for a Let’s Do It! Internal transformation strategy to be delivered during 2021/22 and 2022/23.

 

In response to questions, it was noted that user experience improvements would be more than front-end changes, with wider system developments being a part of the improvements being made to the digital infrastructure. It was agreed that the Cabinet Member would meet with the Leader of the Opposition to discuss the strategy.  

 

Decision:

That Cabinet:

1.   Note the internal progress to date in developing the transformation strategy.

2.   Endorse the overall proposed approach as a basis for action and approve investment proposals.

3.   Note an updating report will be provided to cabinet in January 2022.

 

Reasons for the decision:

This report provides the ‘blueprint’ for the delivery of an ambitious transformation programme for Bury Council over the financial years 2021/22 and 2022/23. It includes the feedback and recommendations from Ameo and sets out the strategic objectives for the programme; the proposed architecture for the next two years and an outline cost/benefit analysis. This report builds and draws on all existing projects and work relating to transformation and brings it into a single programme.

 

Other options considered and rejected:

None.
