Our Strategic Plan

Our Strategic Plan

We have published an Interim Strategic Plan, setting out how we intend to carry out our role in the interim period until our final Strategic Plan is approved by the Scottish Parliament.

We are currently consulting on our draft Strategic Plan - prior to laying our final Plan before Parliament for approval by 1st October 2022.

Our Strategic Plan sets out the strategic outcomes that we are aiming to achieve and our proposed approach to delivering each of these.
