Message from the Chair and
This annual service plan 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 2006/07 through 2008/09 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 to meet the challenges of the Forest and Range Practices Act.
The 2006/07–2008/09 Forest Practices Board Service Plan 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 February 1, 2006 have been considered in preparing the plan and I am accountable for achieving the specific objectives in the plan.
