Digital Strategy Funding

The purpose of this report is to outline activity within the Digital Strategy for the year that requires funds outside of the revenue budget, specifically from the ring-fenced reserve for IT.

The IT reserve was established to address future requirement and pressures within IT, knowing there would be demand going forward to keep pace with the opportunities and changing nature of digital services.


The 2018/9 reserves expenditure will enable progress to be made in a range of areas including upgrades and new systems to support the activity and programmes of the council.  To do this funds are not contained within the revenue budget.
