The Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework (IPR) is a nationally consistent approach to local government planning for service delivery. The main focus of IPR is to establish local priorities and link this information to operational functions.
Council’s minimum obligations relating to planning for the future (IPR) are listed in S5.56 (1) of the Local Government Act 1995.
The Shire has undertaken a consolidated project to meet IPR requirements. This consolidated improvement project has resulted in combining the Strategic Community Plan and Corporate Business Plan into one Integrated Strategic Plan.

Strategic Community Plan
The Strategic Community Plan (SCP) will help shape the services that the Shire of Ngaanyatjarraku will deliver over the next ten years. The SCP will inform and drive the content of the Corporate Business Plan, which will in turn drive the content of informing strategies (i.e. workforce plan, asset management plans and 10-year Long Term Financial Plan).
Corporate Business Plan
The 4 Year Corporate Business Plan (CBP) activates the community aspirations that have been identified in the 10 Year Strategic Community Plan (SCP). It sets the strategic priorities that will drive the operation of the local government over the short to medium term, taking consideration of the human resources, assets and financial capacity of the local government. The SCP and CBP are inter-related, as changes in the SCP can impact and require review and adjustment in the CBP.
The CBP ensures the integration of the following informing strategies:
- Long Term Financial Plan;
- Workforce Plan;
- Asset Management Plan;
- Service Plans; and
- Issue Specific Plans.
The CBP is a dynamic, living document that is reviewed annually and adjusted according to the minor and major review cycles of the SCP, as well as a result of any performance and internal or external issues that will have an impact in the near future.
Long Term Financial Plan
The Long Term Financial Plan (LTFP) is a modelling tool to project a local government's financial commitments over the next tenyears as a means of helping to ensure financial sustainability.
The LTFP is a dynamic tool which analyses financial trends over a ten year period on a range of assumptions and provides information to assess the impacts of current decisions and budgets on future financial sustainability.

Asset Management Plan
The Shire of Ngaanyatjarraku (Shire) is responsible for the provision of many community services and, in doing so, must ensure that the infrastructure assets that facilitate these services are maintained and replaced at optimum levels in accordance with well-developed asset management programs. These programs ensure that the Shire:
- Understand the policy framework which supports Asset Management decisions;
- Knows what assets it owns;
- Understands the condition and expected life of each asset;
- Knows where funding is spent;
- Understands and documents the ‘Levels of service’ needed by and agreed with the community;
- Has a process to establish priorities and allocate funds;
- Knows the long term funding requirements; and
- Has asset & services management plans in place.

The WFP takes into consideration the Strategic Community Plan (SCP), the Corporate Business Plan (CBP), the immediate strategic priorities set by the Council, information around external factors impacting the workforce including: current and projected economic factors, market factors, competitor factors & the level of supply, and data about the current workforce to be sourced including demographics and position / role requirements.
The WFP incorporates the capability of the labour market in terms of achieving Corporate Business Plan (CBP) objectives, an analysis of the risks currently facing the workforce, high level recommendations for strategic development and a discussion of how the workforce will need to change over time to deliver the core objectives in the CBP. By completing this process, the Shire will have a workforce plan adequately addressing the human resourcing requirements to deliver Shire operations.
