DOR has posted its 2013-2015 Strategic Plan. This plan outlines a comprehensive set of goals and actions which will serve as a roadmap to success for the agency.
The Strategic Plan describes how DOR will support the Executive Office of Administration and Finance’s (A&F) Better Performance goal by taking a proactive approach to improve performance, effectiveness and efficiency across the agency, developing and actively measuring standards of quality for core processes, and actively working to improve the skills, processes and technologies to better support the core functions of the agency. The plan also describes how DOR supports A&F’s Better Government goal by creating a customer-focused culture and processes that will support communication, collaboration and co-design with a broad range of stakeholders.
The plan is an important part of DOR’s operational foundation and provides a blueprint by which its divisions can measure and report on their success.
Please take a look at our plan — we trust that you will find it to be comprehensive, informative and useful.
Note: if you require an accessible version of the plan, please see the DOR homepage.
