Strategic Planning

The Plan

In the summer of 2023, DAS launched a year-long effort to create this plan laying out the agency’s strategic direction for the next three years. 

Forming our strategic objectives, priorities and goals, while embedding Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB), took many meetings (in-person and remote), multiple surveys and hours of conversation. We held focus groups for our employees and for agency partners, and they sent us back to the ‘drawing board’ a few times. Their invaluable feedback helped us identify the strategic direction outlined in this plan, which will guide DAS’ efforts effective immediately.

Overarching the plan is an updated mission that is worth highlighting. Though DAS is required to lead state agencies in policy direction, it is imperative that we partner with agencies while providing guidance, and stand alongside agencies in support of their operational and administrative work. This acknowledgement is embodied in the new mission:

Lead state agencies through collaboration in service of Oregonians.

While celebrating the release of this strategic plan, DAS moves forward to the next phase of planning in which we take our high-level goals and create actions at the program level that will improve not only DAS, but state government as well.

We remain committed to serving the people of Oregon, to providing outstanding customer service and to reporting our progress toward achieving DAS’ refreshed strategic objectives.
