New for 2021-22: Strategic Collaboration Initiative Teams
A transformation of Crown Collaboration began in 2021-22 with CIC taking over its coordination. CIC reviewed what worked in the past, took a view of continuous improvement and enhanced alignment with the broader mandate of the Growth Plan. A new structure was created by choosing 13 strategic initiatives that would support the ‘working together’ themes of investment attraction, customer service, and cost savings from working as one team. Some of these strategic initiatives can fall into more than one of the working together themes. Teams were set up with representation from across the Crowns, Ministries, Treasury Board Crowns and Agencies of government.
INVESTMENT ATTRACTION 1. Investment Attraction
the province where needs, specific to each industry, can be met. The catalogue will also act as a heat map that shows key areas for development, by industry, across the province. This will help the Crowns and government better support investment attraction opportunities. This also crosses over to the working as one team theme as it will take many entities working together to have the regional infrastructure developed to attract investment.
Focuses on information sharing and improving coordination to help attract private sector capital investment projects to the province. The team also ensures government services and utilities are available to meet investors needs. This also crosses over to the customer service theme as it is about working together to provide a good experience when attracting private sector capital projects to the province.
4. Shared Utility Corridors
2. Project Delivery
Working to find shared utility corridors to service large customers; working proactively with rural municipalities to identify and establish corridors; enhancing the ability to use highway right of ways for other utilities; and sharing long-term infrastructure plans within government. This also crosses over to the working as one team theme as it will take many entities working together to have shared utility corridors put in place.
Focuses on two things: sharing project management expertise to strengthen project delivery across government, and a project expeditor service. SaskPower has considerable project management experience and is collaborating with government organizations to share information and best practices. The project expeditor service supports investment attraction by providing industry with one point of contact in government to deliver the government services promised when attracting major capital investments. This also crosses over to the customer service theme as it is about keeping the customer (business) in mind and providing them with a good experience once they start the development of their project.
5. Supporting Saskatchewan’s Technology Sector
A cross-government approach to create and expand programs to support the growth of both tech start-ups and established technology companies. Also building a talent pipeline to support industry needs. This also crosses over to the customer service theme by working together to provide a welcoming environment for technology companies to start up or grow in Saskatchewan.
3. Regional Infrastructure
Determine areas of the province where regional infrastructure can be developed to achieve long-term capital savings for government and municipalities; more effectively use government grant funding; and support investment attraction efforts. An industrial needs catalogue will be developed which can be used to identify areas in
6. Infrastructure Investment
