City Performance Plan & BHCC Organisational Health Report
Decision Maker: Cabinet
Decision status: Recommendations approved
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: Yes
(1) That Cabinet notes the new Performance and Risk Management Framework for the council.
(2) That Cabinet endorses the City Performance Plan and recommends it to the Public Service Board (PSB) for final agreement.
(3) That Cabinet approves the Organisational Health Report as being an appropriate suite of indicators to support the Strategic Leadership Board’s management of the organisation.
Reasons for the decision:
The council needs to ensure that it has a robust performance and risk management framework that meets the needs of the new structure and model of working.
As the council is one of the key and lead organisations of the Public Service Board and Strategic Partnership Cabinet is recommended to endorse the City Performance Plan to demonstrate the council’s commitment and co-operation to performance management of city issues.
Cabinet is recommended to endorse the Organisational Health Report to ensure the council has an up to date, robust and relevant set of measures for monitoring and managing the organisation’s performance as a whole.
Alternative options considered:
Through consultation with CMT and SLB the proposed Performance and Risk Management Framework is deemed to be the most suitable model.
Possible alternative options to developing the City Performance Plan included not developing a plan. This was deemed unsafe and unwise by the PSB.
Possible alternative options to developing an Organisational Health Report for the council included not developing a plan. This was deemed unsafe and unwise by the Corporate Management Team.
