States Strategic Plan

The States of Guernsey's overarching strategic plan and other related plans and policies, which define the priorities for the States, will be updated following the election in April 2016. The collection of plans, known collectively as the States Strategic Plan, will remain in place until it is replaced.

History

For several years the States have been developing an approach to improve planning and performance and to make government more accountable to the public. Since 2009 this work has been carried forward through the development of a States Strategic Plan (SSP). The original SSP can be viewed pdf icon here [1Mb].

At their March 2013 meeting the States of Guernsey approved the latest revised version of the SSP. A copy of the relevant States Report which incorporates the plan is available to view pdf icon here [2Mb].

The purpose of the SSP is to provide a mechanism to enable the States to determine what they want to achieve over the long-term (25 year horizon). It is designed to encourage more joined up ways of thinking within Guernsey's consensus form of non-party government. The SSP can adapt over time to changing political agendas and it is intended to make government policies compatible with each other rather than contradictory.

At the highest level the direction of the SSP is set by statements of:

The SSP is not, however, a single document but a family or suite of long-term plans which respond to the Aims, Objectives and Direction of Travel and inter-relate with one another:

The States Strategic Monitoring Report can be found by following this link. It includes a set of performance indicators which are used to assess the effects of government policies and whether desired results are being achieved.

If you would like more information about the States Strategic Plan please contact the Strategy and Policy team. You can use this contact form. 

The future

The States of Guernsey recognise that government in Guernsey needs to work in a more joined up way than in the past. One aspect of joined up government is being able to make decisions for the short-term that also meet long-term objectives.

At present, there is still a gap between the long-term, ten to twenty year thinking in the Policy Plans and Island Resource Plans and the short-term annual cycle of business planning and budgeting in departments. The 2011 SSP looks forward to the development of multi-year business planning and budgets during the next States term (i.e. a three to five year cycle). For those who wish to read more, please see pages 1924 to 1925 of the SSP 2011 (Billet XVI, 2011).

In May 2016 the structure of the Government changed. The six principal Committees will be working to produce new Policy Plans, which will be added to these pages in the future, once the priorities of the states have been determined by the new States Members.

In the meantime, information on the previous Departments remains available for reference.
