54.1         The Committee considered a report of the Acting Director of Finance on the Targeted Budget Monitoring (TBM), a key component of the Council’s overall performance monitoring and control framework. The forecast outturn position was set out as of Month 5 on the Council’s revenue and capital budgets for the financial year 2012/13.


54.2         Dr Horne noted that the report set out the position to the end of August 2012, and asked if there was any update or change on the position. The Acting Director of Finance said that he could not pre-empt the next report, but the general trend was good and the authority was expecting further improvement in the forecast over the remainder of the year.


54.3         Councillor Ken Norman asked for more information in relation to temporary accommodation in paragraph 3.6 of the report; in response it was explained that this was a known pressure area and there would be discussion around the 2013/14 budget setting for new framework contracts to procure lower cost accommodation.


54.4         RESOLVED – That the Committee note the report.
