  13. 13. Political environment: what we know Government A Conservative majority of 12 Priorities: spending reductions, growth, constitutional issues, city devolution, EU, Human Rights Act, etc. 2015/16 in-year cuts DCMS cut by 2.5% (30m) Arts Council by 0.35% Budget announcements 17bn of savings announced Surplus delayed to 2019-20 Spending Review 20bn still to be announced, including non-protected Government departments
  14. 14. Spending Review: context Government plans 37bn savings to be found 20bn to be set out in Spending Review Settlement likely for 2016/17 2019/20 Our approach Making the case for growth Wide-ranging scenario planning Consider GiA/Lottery balance Impact of cuts to LAs Plan for the worst but be prepared for the best.
  15. 15. Spending Review: implications 16/17 17/18 -5% - current NPO/MPM funding could be protected Impact on sector through loss of strategic funds Implications for museums and libraries -15% - loss of over 75m in 17/18 Need for resilience and sustainability 18/19 and beyond Serious challenges from 18/19 and distribution at risk - 20% year on year would require radical changes Assumes consistent National Lottery funding
  16. 16. Timeline for 2018/19 to 2020/21 investment round Assuming we get a settlement of more than two year we will need to set a timeline for the next investment process in autumn 2015. The optimal timeline would be something like. Budget setting and design of processes to be used November 2015 to September 2016. Portal opens for NPO/MPM applications 1st October to 31st December 2016. Access and decision making stage 1st January to 31st March 2017. Negotiations of funding agreements and notice period for leavers and joiners 2017/18 New funding agreements signed by 31st March 2018. In the less likely scenario of only a two year settlement we would probably wait until the next SR before setting an investment timeline.
