Performance Framework

Strategic Objectives

Updated and revised every four years, Strategic Objectives reflect the outcome or management impacts the agency is trying to achieve over the term of an Administration. They express the results or direction the agency will work to achieve to make progress on its mission. Strategic Objectives advance the long-term outcomes identified in the Agency Strategic Plan, and are supported by more specific performance goals and indicators. Annually, agency leaders conduct a Strategic Review that assesses agency progress on achieving the mission, service, stewardship, and other crosscutting strategic objectives in the Agency Strategic Plan, and uses relative assessments to categorize a subset of strategic objectives. Concurrent with the release of the President's FY 2019 Budget, Federal agencies established new strategic objectives spanning 2018 through 2022.

Agency Strategic Plans and strategic objectives can be found by navigating to each agency’s homepage through the agency dropdown below and in the menu bar at the top of the page. Strategic Objectives and agency categorizations resulting from the 2019 Strategic Reviews are also available on each agency’s homepage or at the download button below.
