The funding position has changed due to the transfer of NTRG staff cost from the HR Directorate into the SOCT Directorate during 2017/18. The reason for the comparative budget reduction is that HR Directorate have held onto £0.2k budget for Facilities Management costs within the Learning &amp; Development Unit and the average pay used to set the pay budget allocation for 17/18 was based on average costs which are £7k lower than in previous years and will need to be adjusted next year to reflect Operational rather than HQ posts of approx. £0.41m.
