Section 251 Budget
Received: 21 September 2021
I am requesting details relating to the submission of the Section 251 Budget 2021-22 return and the amount and type of overheads that have been included over and above the frontline services split between Section 251 lines (not including DSG lines) . I have created a spreadsheet to help submit your answers.
The request needs to go to the finance representative who produces and submits the statutory Section 251 budget return (2021-2022 for this instance). These returns are submitted by the end of April 2021 to show the budgets over children's, education and school subjects.
I produced the spreadsheet to ask for the overheads that are included within the section 251 by type (Finance, HR etc) and split between the section 251 topics.
I would expect the representative to understand the request.
The section 251 should be published on all LA websites by law and the last one i could find was 2016-2017 - so i can't tell you who actually submits the returns'
