2022/23 Better Care Fund (BCF) Reconciliation + BCF Updates pdf icon PDF 319 KB

Joint report of the Director of Commissioning and Procurement, Nottingham City Council and the Programme Director for System Development, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Integrated Care Board


Karla Banfield, Head of Commissioning, presented the report which provides the Sub-Committee with the reconciliation of the pooled Better Care Fund (BCF) budget as part of the 2022-23 financial accounts closure process, and changes to the Section 75 agreement. The following was highlighted:


(a)  reconciliation against the planning template for the Nottingham City Council (NCC) schemes were required due to number of budgetary changes which were planned but not completed at the time of submission. There is no change to the ICB BCF schemes, which are forecast to end the year with no financial variance against the 22/23 plan;

(b)  a root and branch review of the BCF has been undertaken to make sure that it is fit for purpose, accurately recorded and fit for the future. There has been a lot of work to increase transparency and avoid confusion, and to show a direct line from budgeting to positive outcomes.


Resolved to


(1)  note and approve the financial end of year reconciliation to the 2022-23 Better Care Fund (BCF) Planning Template;

(2)  note the work being undertaken on the Section 75 agreement.
