Portfolio Performance and Resources - Draft Portfolio Agreement 2020/21 pdf icon PDF 278 KB

To consider a joint report of the Corporate Directors for Corporate & Support Services and Place Management & Regeneration.

 

Policy priorities for 2020/21 were set out within the Council Plan, which was adopted at the Budget Council Meeting in February. This incorporates the shared outcomes from the Borough Plan alongside specific priorities of the Cabinet.   These priorities, re-shaped to take account of One Stockport and Building Back Better (building on Covid19), are articulated within the Portfolio Agreements, which form the basis for regular in-year reporting. Portfolio and Corporate Performance and Resource Reports (PPRRs and CPRRs) will assess progress against key objectives, priorities, outcomes and budgets, enabling Scrutiny Committees to hold the Cabinet to account and for the Cabinet to identify current and future risks to delivery. 

 

This report presents the draft 2020/21 Agreements for the Children, Family Services and Education Portfolio for consideration and comment by the Committee.

 

The Scrutiny Committee is recommended to review and comment on the draft Portfolio Agreements.
