- An internal project control group will coordinate implementation and reporting across the organisation.
- A cross-Council access and inclusion working group will provide Council staff involved in implementation with opportunities for professional development, shared learning and collaboration across branches.
- The working group will also provide opportunities for dialogue with key external stakeholders including researchers, advocates and groups with insight into particular needs and issues.
- Actions, new initiatives and extensions identified in this plan will be implemented and monitored by the relevant program areas within Council over the life of the plan (2012-2017) through the usual work planning, budget allocation and reporting processes.
- The new Access and Inclusion Partnership Grants will support practical Council-community partnerships and ongoing dialogue to support implementation of the plan.
- An annual report and priority plan documenting outcomes for the previous year and priorities for the coming year will be tabled with the Lord Mayor's Advisory Committee on Access and Ageing. Highlights will be included in Council's Corporate Plan and Annual Report each year.
These mechanisms provide the monitoring, transparent reporting and ongoing partnership that the Brisbane community identify as important to inform the implementation of this plan.
