2020/21 Budgets Managed by the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner
The OPFCC undertakes a wide range of delivery and commissioning activities. These are reported throughout the year to the Police, Fire and Crime Panel in detail.
In 2020/21, the budget for the joint role Director of Transformation has been included in Fire and Policing budgets, and as such, there is no separate budget for Enabling Services and the main budgets can be summarised below:
Where Fire costs can be reasonably estimated, they have been; otherwise, a figure of 15% has been used to reflect the total funding formula share for 2019/20. This methodology is consistent with the updated Financial Management Code of Practice to ensure integrity and transparency of both Fire and Policing Funds.
The OPFCC comprises mainly staff costs, the ICT operating budget, internal and external audit fees, Joint Independent Audit Committee (JIAC) allowances and subscriptions to the APCC and NPCC.
The costs of the OPFCC office on the policing budget have reduced by £118K, which is net of a reduction in Fire income of £71K
The OPFCC Commissioning and Delivery Budgets have increased by a net £1.591m to reflect the full year cost of the early intervention and youth initiatives, together with the following additional priorities:
Customer Services relates to the new team set up to meet the legislative changes that give Commissioner a greater role in police complaints, strengthening the independence of the process and increasing public confidence
Public Involvement, Communications, ICT and Research and Analysis provide support, communication and promotion of key messages and work closely gathering information from wider stakeholder groups.
The PFCC remains keen to support initiatives which are in the early stages of planning or which arise during the year, which have not been included within 2020/21 budgets. After launching his initiative in 2018/19, he has decided to continue to ring fence the sum of £0.250m and continue with the grant schemes currently in place.
