There is a range of information published regarding our financial resources and how we are spending it this includes:

Annual Accounts - we publish our annual accounts along with our annual audit letter from our external auditors on our website when available each year.

Budgets – every year the CCG approves its financial plan for the year as part of its overall commissioning strategy and operating plan. In addition the Governing Board receives a financial report each time its meet to review variances against plans, risks and issues, mitigating and rectification actions. These can be found as part of our Governing Body papers.

Financial Governance – we have a range of policies and procedures which govern our financial management arrangements. These include our:

  • constitution

Staff pay arrangements – with the exception of Board members the CCG's directly employed staff are employed on the national Agenda for Change pay scales and grading system, details of which can be found here.

Governing Board members' pay, prior to the CCG taking on responsibilities as an employer,  was established locally and approved by our predecessor (and former host organisation) Hampshire Primary Care Trust Remuneration Committee. The CCGs remuneration arrangements are now overseen by the CCGs Remuneration Committee, chaired by our deputy Chair and lay member for governance.

Procurement arrangements – the CCG has a procurement strategy which sets out its approach to procurement. This can be found under the key documents section of our website.

Details of any contracts currently being tendered by us can be found in the Official Journal of the European Community (OJEC is now recognised as OJEU - the Official Journal of the European Union). This is the publication in which all tenders from the public sector which are valued above a certain financial threshold according to EU legislation must be published.
