This item covers two reports as follows:


·           Third Update Corporate Performance and Resources Report (CPRR) 2018/19

The Third Update Corporate Performance and Resource Report (CPRR) provides an update on progress in delivering the Council’s Priority Outcomes and budget since the mid year report 2018/19, with a particular emphasis on the third quarter (October to December).

Updates are included on delivery of policy priorities, alongside Reform Projects. The report also includes forecasts of budget and performance data where this is available, along with an update on the Corporate Risk Register. It is supported by seven Portfolio Performance and Resource Reports which were considered by the most recent Scrutiny cycle.


The Leader’s Report reflects on significant achievements and challenges, key decisions at Greater Manchester level, along with areas of progress in delivering council priorities over the first half of the year.


These reports were considered and approved by Cabinet on 5 February 2019. 


Scrutiny Committee is asked to:

·           Consider the Third Update Reports;  

·           Review the progress against delivering corporate objectives, key projects, priority outcomes, targets and budgets for 2018/19;

·           Highlight key areas for taking forward corrective action to address any performance or resource issues;

·           Identify how areas of strong performance and good practice can be shared in other services.
