At the May 2019 meeting of the Standards Review and Interpretation Committee (SRIC) the committee directed staff to post the following standard for client comments. Please post your comments or send to CALEA by Friday July 5th, 2019.
15.1.3 (O O M M) Multi-year Plan
The agency has a current, multi-year plan, which includes the following:
a. long-term goals and operational objectives;
b. anticipated workload in relation to population trends;
c. anticipated personnel levels;
d. anticipated capital improvements and equipment needs; and
e. provisions for review and revision as needed.
; and f. collaborative systems review.
The planning process and its end product are essential to effective agency management. The agency should have a clear written articulation of goals and objectives and a plan for achieving them. The plan should cover successive years beyond the current budget year, feedback from employees, and should contain provisions for frequent updating. Care should be given to include all organizational components, specifically when agencies are participating in multiple CALEA Accreditation programming.
The plan should identify those stakeholders or decision makers, both internal and external, that participated in the development and review of the plan. In addition, the plan should take into consideration areas of opportunities for improvement, what led to the need for improvement and what is expected to occur that will bring value to the agency. The impact on present or potential future risks should also be examined.
A collaborative systems review includes the following: contributing elements, identification of involved stakeholders or decision makers, opportunities for improvement in associated systems or processes, and what elements exist contributing to future risks. (O O M M)
