ALC 15 year Strategic Plan 9. Goal E: Working with all Partners 115 report also highlights pressing governance issues, one of which is the need to give some clarity about the duration of the RPA to support effective long term planning. The ALC recommends that this 15 year Strategic Plan forms the framework for the long term plan and that future iterations of the RPA are entered into as medium term action plans toward achieving the Strategic Plan. The ALC supports the findings of the RPA Evaluation and envisages that the recommendations of the report will be addressed in the development of Stage 3 of the RPA. Next steps The ALC views the relationship with agreement partners as one which is progressively strengthening, inherently valuable and which allows for robust discussion and for issues to be addressed. The Australian Government, NT Government and GEMCO commitments to the partnership are crucial to achieving the long term plan. Further, other entities operating in the region should be brought in to the partnership, including Groote Eylandt Aboriginal Trust and Aminjarrinja Enterprises. The role of the East Arnhem Shire Council in the partnership must be assessed and determined; and carrying out this assessment is a recommendation of the RPA Evaluation. The Regional Partnership Agreement Stage 2 is now in its third year and there are some commitments made under the RPA which are yet to be completed. The table below outlines the projects which are still continuing and these projects will be captured in the next iteration of the RPA. Note that some projects have been excluded on the premise that the projects will be resolved by January 2013. There are also many programs that were initiated under the RPA and while the time-bound commitment under the RPA has been met, it is crucial that what has been established is built on and continues. For example continuation of an early literacy and numeracy program is an essential part of early childhood development and is a priority post the DEEWR three year funding of the Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation. This is similar for most other programs under the building blocks of schooling, youth, sport and recreation, safe communities, health, governance and leadership. Similarly, additional infrastructure needs exist, in particular over-crowing is still an issue in Angurugu. This strategic plan provides a proposal on next actions across the building blocks.

The EASC has taken steps to clarify the cost of completion works but may not have capacity to cover those costs. There is risk of damage to the facilities if not secured before onset of the
