The Local Government Management Agency’s Corporate Plan for 2023-2025 aims to ensure the LGMA’s work continues to meet the needs and ambitions of local authorities over the next three years and to position the Agency to continue developing for the future.
This work focuses on providing both day-to-day and strategic support across all the services and functions of local authorities. The Agency also has an expanded remit to manage large-scale national projects that impact on the local government sector.
This is reflected in a change to the organisation structure and inclusion of an additional pillar, hosting an array of national projects, including the national Housing Delivery Co-ordination Office (HDCO), Local Authority Circular Economy Co-ordination Office and the Emergency Vacant Housing Delivery (Ukraine) Unit. An office to co-ordinate the national Town Centre First policy implementation has also been established within this pillar, alongside the existing office supporting the transition of water services to Uisce Eireann (WSTO).
A key focus in the plan, based on extensive consultation with internal and external stakeholders, is the development and delivery of the Local Government Digital and ICT Strategy, as a critical step in supporting the digital transformation of public service delivery.
This new pillar will be fundamental in supporting local authorities and the LGMA in developing and adopting leading practices in Digital and ICT management and security. The LGMA’s latest Corporate Plan sets out how it will achieve its objectives by becoming an employer of choice, supporting the development of employees and supporting local authorities with specialised skillsets in, for example, Digital & ICT, Health & Safety, Cybersecurity, Human Resource Management, Procurement, Programme and Project Management.
