More often than not, the provincial government's service plans feature ambiguous rather than ambitious goals and performance measures. But would any public office holder actually admit that? Well, in an email to stakeholders, Industry Training Authority chief executive officer Kevin Evans wrote his agency's plan provides "a crisp picture of the ITA's priorities for the coming year as established by the ITA's Board of Directors. It sets ambiguous (sic) goals by which our success over the coming year will be judged." Of course, we're sure he actually meant to write ambitious. But his spell checker seems to have gotten the better of him! The following is a complete copy of that email.
Subject: Industry Training Authority's 2010 - 2013 Service Plan
I am pleased to let you know that the Industry Training Authority's 2010/11 - 2012/13 Service Plan was released last week alongside the provincial budget. The plan provides you with a crisp picture of the ITA's priorities for the coming year as established by the ITA's Board of Directors. It sets ambiguous goals by which our success over the coming year will be judged.
I encourage you to review the ITA Service Plan, which can be found on our website at http://www.itabc.ca/Page61.aspx
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
