Between now and the 2020 elections, the Interim Administrator and the IMC will be focused on implementing the following three-phase plan in support of their VISION2020 program, with time allocated to the monitoring and refining of all new policies, procedures and systems prior to the March 2020 local government elections and the return of councillors to Ipswich City Council. The IMC will focus on three priority areas during each phase: governance, risk and compliance; performance; strategic.
In the first phase of VISION2020, the IMC is committed to addressing the most pressing issues facing Ipswich City Council.
The second phase is intended to identify opportunities to amend or remove existing procedures and frameworks in order to realign the operations of the organisation towards achieving its long-term strategic goals. The operational realignment of Ipswich City Council will ensure the business continues to provide quality services to the residents of Ipswich during interim administration and beyond.
With the goal of establishing Ipswich City Council as a leader in local government, the third phase is all about leading practice and becoming a shining light for other councils.
