The Finance Function is not an end in itself and there are ways in which we can judge our success in meeting finance objectives that in turn contribute towards helping the whole Council achieve its overall aims. The focus on performance is important but we must also show we intend to keep on trying to improve the quality and cost effectiveness of the finance service.
Our desire is to provide our customers with services that are high quality, relevant and at a price that is affordable. Our philosophy concentrates on serving customers, promoting good stewardship of public funds and supporting the Council’s objectives.
In the Service Performance Plan you will see set out our own objectives for the Finance Function together with statements about how we will go about undertaking our duties.
