Ethics Commission –2027

Exposure Draft for November 15, 2017 Honolulu Ethics Commission meeting

This strategic plan involved a review of current practices and procedures, and sets forth a blue print for the future.

This document sets out a longer-term strategy and is based on discussions held in 2017. It is a work in progress, a flexible and directional touchstone for Commissioners and Staff It will be revisited periodically over the next several years—2020 (year three), 2022 (year five), and 2024 (year seven)—and as key assumptions change or as internal or external conditions require. As needed, we will use it as source material to drive specific changes in direction, laws and rules, procedures and activities.

As part of this strategy, we will examine other jurisdictions and determine best practices for ethics commissions and ethics oversight. Similar jurisdictions may have similar ethics laws, oversight and enforcement responsibilities, population size, demographics, geographic size, among other factors.

Finally, we commit to properly balancing transparency and openness with necessary and legally warranted confidentiality. Critical to our success, however, is the need for appropriate resources, including adequate budget, number and type of staff and commissioner capacity proportionate to the overall workload.
