Monitoring Strategic Plan Actions

The ARCC will monitor the delivery of the strategic plan through its existing Council meeting process. Twice a year (October and April) ARMB Chairs will provide a progress report on the delivery of that year’s actions that are assigned to the ARMBs, as will the Chair of the ARCC for actions assigned to it. The ARCC will also provide an update on the progress of any actions assigned to other organisations (such as DELWP).
