    Minutes:

    The Chief Operating Officer for Orbis introduced the report and outlined the key components of the Business Plan. The Committee discussed the benefits and investment required to deliver the Business Plan. The Chief Operating Officer highlighted that the benefits are based on business efficiencies and do not depend on business growth. The Committee noted that investment in the Business Solutions Platform and the replacement of the existing Enterprise Resource Planning (SAP) system will be subject to a separate business case and approval process.

     

     

    RESOLVED:

     

    It was resolved:

     

    a)    to approve the three year (2016/17-2018/19) business plan; and

     

    b)    to recommend the investment proposals and the roadmap for integration contained within it to the Cabinets of both Surrey County Council and East Sussex County Council for approval.

     

    Reasons for Decisions:

     

    Approval of the business plan is necessary in order for the partnership to implement the integration required to deliver the Target Operating Model. The implementation requires investment from both authorities to realise efficiencies that will be achieved through full integration as set out in the business plan.
