Message from the Chair
This is the third annual service plan prepared by the Forest Practices
Board for presentation to the B.C. Legislature under the Budget Transparency
and Accountability Act.
This plan outlines the results the Board expects to achieve in
the three-year period from 2004/05 through 2006/07 with the funds
voted to it by the Legislature, providing the basis for accountability
and assessing the Board's performance.
The service plan also provides a strategic context that guides
the Board's current activities. Looking to the future, we continue
to refine our strategic objectives, the linkages to our business
areas, and the performance measures by which the Legislature and
the public will be able to track our progress over time.
It is the Board's intent to continue the delivery of its mandate
through its audit, investigation, review and appeal, and reporting
functions, while adapting its process to meet the challenges of
the impending Forest and Range Practices Act.
