Report of the Group Director of Operations


The Group Director of Operations submitted a report (previously circulated) advising Members of the outcome of the 2021/22 Managers’ Assurance Statements (MAS).


It was reported that the MAS was a key element of the Council’s corporate governance arrangements and, based on the 2021/22 returns, had identified an overall positive position.


It was also reported that although no common improvement themes had been highlighted in the 2021/22 returns

 a number of improvements to process /controls were identified and these matters will be progressed by Assistant Directors during 2022/23.


Members discussed how Scrutiny Committees could be advised of the high level risks and it was agreed that the Assistant Director of Resources will discuss this further with the Chair.


RESOLVED – That the report be noted.
