Title: 2019-2021 Corporate Plan Implementation Update - Frostad
Department: Corporate Services
This topic relates to all three of the City’s strategic vision elements contained in Council’s Strategic Plan

Request for Decision Summary
This report is intended to update Council on Administration's progress on the implementation of the 2019 initiatives approved in the 2019 to 2021 Corporate Plan. 

Proposed Motion
That the status report on the implementation of the 2019 initiatives, as part of the 2019 to 2021 Corporate Plan, be received as information.

Background/Analysis
Administration has prepared a status report on the implementation of the 2019 initiatives that were approved by Council in the 2019 to 2021 Corporate Plan. Integrated Planning and Strategic Services has compiled this report based on input from project managers and initiative owners. The report is current as of the end of the second quarter of 2019.

The 2019-2021 Corporate Plan contains 71 approved initiatives for 2019. They are broken down as follows:

Initiative Type Description # of Initiatives
Corporate External - Operating The primary impact of these projects will be on the community as a whole. These projects are directly designed to maintain or improve the quality of life and competitiveness of the City. 24
Corporate Internal – Operating These projects are intended to streamline and enhance administrative efficiency and effectiveness and ensure the City Services continue to be delivered in a streamlined and cost-effective manner. 12
Capital These projects create or acquire a distinct, new asset that is amortized over time and may require design activities. They also include major replacement of existing assets and may also require design activities. 32
Departmental - Operating The focus of a departmental project may impact the community, or may be more focused on internal administrative improvements. The key distinction is that it is not strategic, and supports the needs of a particular department or section. 3

This year’s report works to align the initiatives and projects with the appropriate strategic priority areas of Council’s strategic plan as well as the Council's focus areas that were identified earlier this year. Projects that relate to City business operations are also highlighted as they support both core services and those projects that directly relate to the implementation of the strategic plan. The report is intended to be an overview, highlighting the objective, key milestones, challenges, and current status of those projects from both a timing and financial perspective.

Corporate Services is working to align future corporate plan updates with the quarterly financial statement presentations to Council. 
Options/Alternatives
Feedback on the report format and information provided would be appreciated to ensure that it continues to be an effective tool.

This report will be generated regularly throughout the year and will be brought to Council in conjunction with the quarterly financial statements. 
Impacts
