Provision of Support Services 2017-2018

Joint Report the Corporate Director: Regeneration and Local Services and the Corporate Director: Resources / Treasurer to the Joint Committee.



The Principal Accountant referred Members to the report setting out the proposed Service Level Agreement (SLA) for Support Service provision by Durham County Council to the Central Durham Crematorium Joint Committee for 2017/18 (for copy see file of minutes).


Councillors were reminded that the SLA had been in place for a few years, following previous External Audit recommendations, and set out the support services provided to the Joint Committee by Durham County Council including:


·       Management Services

·       Financial Services

·       Administration Services

·       Payroll Services

·       Human Resources Services


It was noted that the breakdown of services provided and costs were set out within the report, and that the SLA was reviewed and updated annually, with the slight increase in cost of 3% to take into account inflationary pressures.




That the Service Level Agreement for the provision of Support Services to the Joint Committee for the year 2017/18 be approved.
