Protective Marking: OFFICIAL
To use part of the OPCC Reserves to fund additional costs subsequent to the setting of the budget for 2021/22
The OPCC budget was agreed in February 2021 prior to the PCC elections. Since then the PCC has decided to provide additional resource for the following areas:
|Deputy PCC||£70k Inc. on costs||Following Government’s statement that they intend to require a deputy PCC to be appointed the PCC has decided to put one in place|
|Strategic Comms||£30k||To provide strategic advice to the OPCC to advise on communication with the public and Government|
|Property Advice||£25k||To provide independent property advice to the PCC|
|Analyst||£25k||To provide information and analysis for the PCC|
This funding is for this year only. If they are required beyond that then they will be included within the 21/22 budget process.
As at the 31st March 2021, subject to audit, the OPCC Operational Reserve had a balance of £1.150m.
It is recommended that the PCC transfers £150k from the OPCC Operational Reserve to the 21/22 OPCC Budget
