Whole Essex Community Budget
The delivery of a Whole Essex Community Budget will require specific enabling activities. Typically, these are activities that, whilst critical to the success of the programme, are valuable by virtue of the support they provide to the wider portfolio of projects.
These seven themes are as follows: - .
Cost Benefit Analysis
develop a consistent approach to account for the economic, fiscal and financial impacts of projects – critical to evaluating the success of Community Budget approach.
Funding Flow Analysis
assess the nature and scale of funding in Essex, reducing complexity and improving resource planning across the Essex public sector.
Next Generation Investment Vehicles
consider how public services provided by both Essex partners and local agencies of central government could be supported by investment from a range of third party investors.
agree a common commitment to the sharing of data between public agencies, where the sharing of data between agencies is considered the norm
Collaborative Asset Management across Essex
establish a common commitment to the joint use and best utilisation of public sector property assets.
ensure the c. 150,000 public sector workers in Essex have the skills and expertise to deliver 21st century public services
To develop a programme to deliver capacity to the market, provide jobs and economic growth and underpin the infrastructure investment business case.
