2002/03 Annual Service Plan Report
Office of the Premier
am pleased to present the second Office of the Premier Annual Service
Plan Report for the 2002/2003 fiscal year. The annual report provides
a detailed overview of the progress that the Office of the Premier
has made in implementing our service plan commitments.
Our government is acting to revitalize the economy, to restore
sound fiscal management, and to renew the public services that are
important to British Columbians. As we implement this plan, the
Office of the Premier is responsible for providing the overall strategic
direction to Ministries to ensure we meet these goals and commitments
in a timely and effective way.
We have put in place a number of measures to ensure accountability
for results. Legislation now in place requires annual three-year
service plans for each ministry and government organization alongside
the provincial budget. Government has also developed a three-year
Strategic Plan that articulates the government's vision, goals,
and objectives that the service plans support. And through the Balanced
Budget and Ministerial Accountability Act, we've put in place
new measures to help ensure that government balances the budget
All of these measures are designed to ensure the government's goals
are presented and met in a way that is open and accountable to the
public. We will continue working in the year ahead to build a future
of new opportunity for all British Columbians.
