As a Schedule 3A entity in terms of the Public Finance Management Act, the Film and Publication Board (FPB) is required to submit a proposed strategic plan to the Department of Communications every year. The latest strategic document is based on the FPB Council’s review of the strategic direction of the FPB, carried out by EXCO and management. The review takes into account the needs of FPB stakeholders, its mandate, and the role it can play in meeting South Africa’s national objectives and priorities. The plan provides a broad overview of the strategic direction of the FPB. It includes objectives identified during the strategic planning process, as well as multi-year projections of programmes and projects. The review process also takes cognisance of the strategic context within which the FPB operates.
