Organisation Performance Reports (OPRs)
We’re on a journey on being transparent on how our organisation is performing with Elected Members and our community, and the Organisation Performance Report (OPR) is an important step. The report is a great opportunity to share our stories, our successes, our concerns and where we need to improve. This report is just a snapshot of the great work we do across our community.
A full OPR will be prepared for every second ordinary Council meeting and a much briefer Interim OPR will be prepared for ordinary Council meetings in between. As this is a 'living document', each time you'll see refinements, improvements, additions and deletions. We'll always be working towards keeping our Elected Members and our community fully informed and up to date.
The OPR had a revamp earlier this year, mostly to align with the Council Plan on a Page. We've also changed our Activity Updates to Group Updates which include Activity Updates, to allow work that's completed within a Group but not in an activity to be reported on.
As of April 2023 the contents of our OPRs include:
Health and Safety Report
Health and Safety is so important we've put this at the front of the report. This is in addition to the detailed dashboard that the Risk and Assurance Committee receives. The Health and Safety Report will provide updates on:
- Worker Engagement
- Risk Management.
There are five Groups within Horowhenua District Council:
- Organisation Performance;
- Community Infrastructure;
- Community Vision and Delivery;
- Housing and Business Development; and
- Community Experience and Service.
These Groups will provide a general update and the relevant activity updates will be found within these.
Each of our 11 activities will provide an update on:
- General Updates - updates on any work not covered by the 'What we are Delivering' section
- What we are Delivering - reporting on the many pieces of work we do as a result of actions set in our key documents such as the Long Term Plan, Annual Plan, Blueprint, Strategies, and Community Outcomes etc
- Any relevant risk or issues.
Top 10 Priorities
This section provides updates on each of the 10 priorities identified in the Council Plan on a Page.
Other Areas of Focus
This section provides updates on each of the nine areas of focus identified in the Council Plan on a Page.
Values and Pillars
Case studies will be provided identifying how Council has met the values and pillars noted in the Council Plan on a Page.
Financial Summary Report
Important financial information detailing how we're performing financially.
This report provides an update on risk work progressed in the reporting period and new risks identified.
Statement of Service Performance (SSPs)
These SSPs were set after consultation with our community during the 2021–2041 Long Term Plan consultation process. They're important measures of our ‘business as usual’ work. We note whether these SSPs are on track or not to achieve their target for the financial year
The financial and SSP reporting has a different reporting period to the rest of the report. The reporting periods are always noted at the beginning of the report.
