My highlights from 2007/08
"Within Finance, the year was dominated by planning for the Library's future financial strategy as we awaited details of the Comprehensive Spending Review. In parallel, we made significant improvements in budget management and financial processes to maintain services and delivery with reduced real-terms resources.
Estates have run three major tender exercises for our engineering and maintenance, cleaning and catering services. We’ve managed significant property-related issues at St Pancras and begun a site masterplanning exercise for our Boston Spa site. The security team have responded to increasing demands to further strengthen the Library's procedures to ensure the safety of people, collections and buildings.
Our Strategy and Planning Team has led development of the Library's new three-year corporate strategy and priorities, which we hope to launch in autumn 2008. Our Procurement team has supported an array of major procurement exercises, having adopted a Corporate Procurement Strategy with new and rigorous policies and procedures.
Finance and Corporate Services is proud to be an integral part of ensuring that, across the board, the Library's programmes are being delivered to the highest professional standards and at the best possible value for money."
