  • FORWARD I am pleased to present the National Planning Framework (NPF) of the Vanuatu Government.

    The NPF is designed to complement the planning, monitoring and reporting aligned with implementation of the Vanuatu 2030 The Peoples Plan. This is our National Sustainable Development Plan (NSDP) for the period 2016-2030. The NPF further coordinates with the National Monitoring and Evaluation Policy (MEP) and the NSDP Monitoring and Evaluation Framework The NPF is designed to assist decision makers involved in planning at ministry level align Corporate Plans,

    Business Plans and policies with the NSDP and the MEP. The NPF includes critical information needed to

    ensure Vanuatu is successful in planning and reporting on progress related to the NSDP. A critical

    component of the NPF is the revised Corporate and Business Planning Guidelines which are stated in

    Annex 2 of this document.

    The last update of the Corporate Planning Guidelines for Preparing Corporate and Business Plans in the Vanuatu Public Service were approved in 2001. Over the past 17 years, there have been considerable change in the use of planning, monitoring and evaluation across the public service, including the design and development of the NSDP. The NPF, including the revised planning guidelines are designed to: 1. Ensure integration and alignment of NSDP priorities into the planning process 2. Design a simpler process for ministry planning which reduces duplication 3. Design better linkages between the business plans, the budget narrative and corporate plans,

    ensuring that that performance indicators and service targets are consistent with NSDP 4. Provide an opportunity for high level review of plans by DGs and Ministers 5. Encourage closer coordination between central agencies in reviewing plans 6. Strengthen the opportunity for improved performance management The NPF is further designed to improve the implementation the NSDP and to coordinate ministry planning and budgeting at all levels of Government with a focus on improved performance and service delivery. I would like to emphasize that the government will maintain its commitment not only to implement the

    government policies stated in the Peoples’ Plan 2030, but to also use the NPF to ensure effective

    alignment of planning, budgeting and reporting in order to best address issues that could hinder

    development efforts.

    Let me take this opportunity to thank all the government Agencies who contributed to the development

    of the NPF.

    Honourable Charlot Salwai Tabimasmas (MP) Prime Minister July 2018
