The Government Work Plan will set the direction for the political term and will capture all government work in one place.
What is the Government Work Plan?
- The States agreed that the main priorities of the Plan are:
- responding to the COVID-19 pandemic;
- managing the effects of Brexit;
- delivering the recovery actions; and
- right-sizing government.
- The Plan will also include Public Service Reform and capital projects.
What has happened so far?
- On 26th March 2021, the States of Deliberation agreed the main priorities for the Plan and noted the list of emerging recovery actions. The Assembly also agreed, amongst other things, to rescind or transfer a number of extant Resolutions and to direct the Policy & Resources Committee to work with other Committees to bring a second policy letter on the Government Work Plan to the States.
- The full list of Resolutions made by the Assembly in March 2021 can be found here.
What will happen next?
- The second policy letter will be submitted to the States of Deliberation in June, before being debated at a Special Meeting on 21st July 2021. This policy letter will include:
- commentary on the resource commitments and allocation for each of the four priorities of government;
- the measures and targets, and anticipated timeframes for delivery, as far as can be determined; and
- the scheduling of the recovery actions, revised as necessary to reflect resource availability;
- Public Service Reform and capital projects will be considered in the second policy letter.
- If this second policy letter is approved by the States, the Plan will then be implemented and progress will be reported on. The Plan will be reviewed annually and changes to the phasing of recovery actions will be considered.
