2021 to 2030 project highlights
Planning and Strategic Initiatives
- Implement Office 365 (IT0067) throughout the corporation to fully enable work from anywhere for staff including access to files, applications, forms and the use of video conference technology from any hardware from any network. This work will include advances in security features and a continued utilization of cloud-based services.
Facility Renewal and Expansion
- Renewal of the Provincial Offenses Court facility (CS0004).
Equipment and Vehicle Renewal
- Modify the fleet vehicle and equipment lifecycle programs, and the technology lifecycle program to meet current funding constraints. The modifications will lead to using equipment past its useful life, increasing the risk of failure and increased operating costs.
- Make a significant investment in modernizing our Computerized Maintenance Management (CMMS) system to further the goals of the Asset Management Plan, to enable a mobile workforce and review our human capital management system (IT0065) to increase efficiency through process automation.
