Strategic Vision
ODFW Strategic Vision

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife conducts planning and prioritization exercises at the start of every biennium.  After experiencing budget shortfalls for several biennia and reviewing a performance audit from the Secretary of State, we decided to take a more comprehensive approach to planning starting in 2015. Our new approach was to begin development of a long-term Strategic Plan.

The intent of the strategic plan was to establish long-term goals, seek input from staff at all levels, align resources and priorities, and provide measures of fiscal and program performance.

In late 2015, we began with the development of a vision, an overarching strategy, and four goals.  The next step was development of specific, measureable, achievable, relevant, and time specific objectives. 

For the start of the 2017-2019 biennium, we compiled teams to develop strategies and tactics to meet our goals and objectives.  The teams developing strategies and tactics are comprised of members representing regional fish, regional wildlife, wildlife division, fish division, and our administrative programs.  The goals, objectives, strategies, and tactics will not be finalized until January/February of 2018.

Although the plan will not be complete until early in 2018, the Department has initiated processes and developed several tools that will assist and influence Strategic Planning efforts. Take a moment to review our strategic plan and the tools we have developed (Alternative Funding Task Force, a public perception survey, Online Task Tracking Information System (OTTIS), Administrative Strategic Plan, development of the Management Resources Division, and development of our Key Information System).
