The Chief Executive and Executive Director Core Services submitted a report on the final Annual Governance Statement 2018/19 and requesting the Committee to refer it to Council for consideration and adoption as part of the process for approving the 2018/19 Statement of Accounts. A copy of the Statement was appended to the report.
The Risk and Governance Manager gave a brief resume of the contents of the Statement and how the review had been undertaken. An action plan had been prepared to capture the issues raised throughout the review process and this document would form the basis for the Committee monitoring throughout the year. The action plan was appended as Appendix one to the Annual Governance Statement and outlined the two items upon which further action was required. An update of the action plan would be submitted to the Committee throughout the year.
It was noted that Mr Hunt (Risk and Governance Manager) was to leave the employment of the Authority shortly and the Chair and Members of the Committee asked to place on record their thanks and appreciation for his hard work, dedication and commitment to the Council over a number of years.
RECOMMENDED TO FULL COUNCIL ON THE 25th JULY, 2019 that the final Annual Governance Statement 2018/19 be approved and adopted.
