Cabinet tomorrow will consider expanding the scope of LGSS to provide finance, IT and Revenue and Benefits services for Norwich City Council. Northamptonshire CC’s Cabinet will consider the proposal in February.
The LGSS Joint Committee, which I chair, met on Friday afternoon and has made a positive recommendation to both Cabinets about the deal.
Expanding LGSS is expected to generate additional savings through economies of scale and to add capacity and capability.
I know that Norwich City are very excited by the deal which will bring greater expertise to them. LGSS continues to lead the way, nationaly, in sharing back office functions. Great work by the team.
