We held public consultation on IPSA’s draft strategy for 2018 - 2022 [PDF] between 5 February and 2 March 2018.
This was the first time we have invited comments on a draft version of our strategy, so we could take account of our stakeholders’ views.
IPSA has established itself as an effective regulator and administrator of MPs’ pay and business costs. We have worked to assure the public that MPs’ use of taxpayers’ money is well regulated and to resource and support MPs appropriately to carry out their parliamentary functions. We will continue to do so.
In our third Parliament, we propose to focus on five strategic priorities. We want first to create a strong and supportive regulatory environment, and second to ensure we manage data and information effectively. We are committed, third, to transparency and public engagement, as well as, fourth, to working in partnership with MPs, the House of Commons and others. Fifth, we wish to be an outstanding employer too. These priorities will be underpinned by new corporate values to inform our work: professionalism, respect, integrity, collaboration and improvement.
The consultation ran until 2 March, after which IPSA’s Board agreed and published the final IPSA Strategy, which came into effect in April 2018.
