The Office of Strategic Management is providing ongoing support to state agencies to develop and implement their state's strategic planning efforts. Strategic plans allow state agencies to focus on their mission and vision statements, identify specific and quantifiable goals, determine the strategies and objectives to reach the agency's goals, and develop the action plans to implement those strategies. Clear timelines and responsibilities will assist state agencies to put their plans into action and measure progress towards achieving their goals. This tool will be reviewed annually to allow for course corrections and will be tied to performance measures to monitor its implementation.
The Office will provide ongoing support for agencies as strategic plans are developed. Agency strategic goals will also highlight opportunities for interagency collaboration. This work will help improve accountability and transparency and make government more efficient.
