2021/2024 Strategic Plan

Our Strategic Plan outlines what the Office intends to accomplish to achieve its vision and mission by expanding on who we are, what we do and how we support Saskatchewan's Legislative Assembly, government and public service.

It provides a foundation for the Office’s Business and Financial Plans provided to the Standing Committee on Public Accounts (PAC) each year, as well as a strategic framework to assess and to report on the Office’s performance.

In addition, our Strategic Plan highlights our value and presents an opportunity to outline the performance measures we strive to fulfill in advancing excellence and inspiring confidence in the public sector through our work.
