Integrated Planning for Future Investments

Integrated planning creates a shared roadmap for a Nation to establish priorities and link them to operations and spending. Integrated planning involves a Comprehensive Community Plan (CCP); strategic plan ; capital project plans; multiyear financial plan; work plans; annual reports; and a risk management plan.

In this Integrated Planning workshop, we will go through the entire integrated planning process and then focus on multiyear financial planning. We will walk through the creation of a multi-year financial plan as well as work in teams on a case study.

Integrated planning can bring rise to conflicts of interest when it comes to decision-making. A conflict of interest is a situation where a person may be involved in activities that could negatively affect their ability to make an independent, unbiased decision. Understanding and managing conflicts of interest is an important element of planning and good governance .

The integrated planning workshop will include a short session on conflicts of interest that involves role playing and mock Council meetings that will support Nations in assessing and managing conflicts of interest as they work to achieve their strategic goals.
