    • Integrated Planning & Reporting
      IPDiagram4web.png

      The Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework changes the way the NSW State Government requires Council to report on the business of Council and has introduced more accountability to the Community into the reporting framework.

       

      In particular, mandatory documents now include a ten year Community Strategic Plan, a four (4) year Delivery Program and an annual Operaterational Plan/Budget as well as Resourcing Strategy which includes Long Term Financial Planning, a Workforce Management Plan and Asset Management Plan.

       

      The Community Strategic Plan was first adopted in 2010. It identifies the main priorities and aspirations for the Shire and was reviewed and adopted in June 2012.

       

      The Delivery Program contains the principle activities Council will undertake over the next 4 years to contribute to the achievement of the Community Strategic Plan. The Operational Plan outlines the projects, programs, and activities that Council will undertake within each of the financial years covered in the delivery program.

       

      The Resource Strategy is used to determine whether there are sufficient resources - time, money, assets and people - available to achieve projects, programs and activities. The three components of the Resourcing Strategy deal with 10 year Long Term Financial Plan, a 10 year Asset Management Plan and a 4 year Workforce Management Plan.

       

      Council will report progress in delivering the measures and targets in the Operational Plan, which allows the Community to see the progression of goals outlined in the Delivery Program. The final report for the year is the Annual Report.
