Technical Standards and Policy Division


The Technical Standards and Policy Division’s responsibilities include researching and studying assessment valuation policy and best practices in assessment valuation standards and guidelines. The Division advises the Province with respect to property assessment legislation, prepares board orders to establish rules of assessment for the valuation of regulated properties and prepares valuation handbooks and guidelines for the market valuation of residential, commercial, seasonal and light industrial properties. 


The Division is also responsible for liaising with the external assessment service providers, advising and training appraisers on valuation procedures and use of the Saskatchewan Property Assessment Network (SPAN), developing technologies that support the appraisal process, internal quality coordination and the provision of assessment information to municipalities and school divisions, the Province and the public.
