Cabinet Decision: 20th May 2010
Title of Item/Report
Xentrall Annual Report 2009/2010
Record of the Decision
Members considered the 2nd Annual Report 2009 - 2010 of Xentrall Shared Services the partnership between Stockton and Darlington Councils. The partnership business case previously approved by Members identified joint savings of £7.4m over 10 years and significant service improvements.

Whilst the previous year was all about setting up the partnership and moving the staff into their new posts and new locations, this year has been about improving and transforming the services.

Members noted that the partnership was continuing to deliver the objectives set out in the original business case. The services had been standardising and automating their processes to enable them to meet the savings in the business case. The efficiencies in business case will be realised two years earlier than originally thought and further savings had also been identified to enable each Council to meet its Medium Term Financial Plan challenges.

In addition to the savings and efficiencies set out in the original business case, additional improvements, savings and efficiencies have been achieved because of the joint working. Details of these and future joint developments were provided.

RESOLVED that the report be noted.
