The role of the Section 151 Officer is set out in legislation. Section 151 Officers are responsible for the proper administration of the financial affairs of local authorities. This website and accompanying seminar programme is designed to offer Chief Financial Officers/Section 151 Officers a resource site and and forum to explore challenges and solutions.
We recognise the wealth of experience, enthusiasm and talent of our Section 151 Officers and as with our DCSs, the support of colleagues and safe environment to share ideas and learn from each other is beneficial to all.
The SESLIP Programme Board has agreed to develop a work-stream to support knowledge and solution sharing opportunities for Section 151 Officers and DCS’s as a part of the SESLIP Improvement Plan.
The South East Region’s Finance Officers Group and DCS Seminar programme is sponsored by Alison Jeffery, DCS, East Sussex and Deborah Glassbrook who is an approved SESLIP Consultant.
