The updated Government Plan 2021-2024 has been published in its final form to reflect the amendments adopted by the States Assembly in December 2020.
The Government Plan outlines government priorities for the next four years, including how money will be spent and invested, and how Government can find efficiencies and modernise its services.
The Government Plan 2021-2024 will deliver the Council of Minister’s Common Strategic priorities. Work included in this plan include:
- Funding for a three-year education reform programme
- Implementing the Jersey Care Model
- Continuing work to make Jersey carbon neutral
- Delivering a new hospital
Among the amendments included in the final version of the Government Plan were: the bringing forward of funding to set up a Public Services Ombudsman, the allocation of additional funds for the Care Leavers Package, and funding to contribute towards the running costs of Beresford Street Kitchen.
Departmental Operational Business Plans (Business Plans) for 2021 have also been published. These provide a detailed business plan for each Government department, translating the priorities of the Government Plan into actions and tasks for 2021 together with information on departmental service delivery and performance measures.
Chief Minister, Senator John Le Fondré said: “Given the turbulent times we find ourselves in, it is more important than ever that the Government has a clear, agreed set of priorities, as well as a clear plan on how to achieve those priorities.
“The publication of the Government Plan 2021-2024, and the Business Plans which support it, provide us with an ambitious scheme of work and the ‘roadmap’ on how to get there. I’d like to once again thank all the officers who have developed the Plan for their work, the Scrutiny Panel for their consideration and amendments, and States Members for their insight and support.”
