Message from the Chair and
This annual service plan update is prepared by the Forest Practices Board for presentation to the B.C. Legislature under the
Budget Transparency and Accountability Act.
The plan outlines the results the Board expects to achieve in the three-year period from 2005/06 through 2007/08 with the
funds voted to it by the Legislature, providing the basis for accountability and assessment of 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 Forest and Range Practices Act.
The Forest Practices Board 2005/06 – 2007/08 Service Plan Update was prepared under my direction in accordance with the Budget Transparency and Accountability Act. I am accountable for the basis on which the plan has been prepared. All material fiscal assumptions and policy decisions
as of September 2, 2005 have been considered in preparing the plan and I am accountable for achieving the specific objectives
in the plan.
