operationally define AFM's present and future environment:
Customer input and our
planning assumptions set the context for the strategic outcomes. Using
both, AFM developed five strategic outcomes and related goals and objectives
that, while achievable, will stretch our capabilities and resources.
Customer expectations will continue to be high. Customers will be more
involved in AFM planning and operations. Expectations will change and cannot
Personnel Changes. AFM
staffing levels will continue to decrease. The senior leadership in REE
will change on a regular basis. Employee turnover will continue.
Congress will continue to reduce the Federal budget, and AFM will have
fewer resources to support our customers.
Compliance and pressures will continue. Regulatory and reform mandates
will continue from many sources. Central planning agencies will continue
to direct administrative and financial management change.
Cost and quality will be increasingly important factors in evaluating AFM
services. Competition and alternatives for services will surface from other
sources within and outside the Government.
Technology changes and advances will dramatically influence AFM's ability
to carry out its mission.
A strategic outcome
is an end result to which AFM efforts are ultimately directed. A goal specifies
a broad result, aim, or end that can be assessed in terms of achievement
within 2 to 6 years. Objectives provide the framework for developing
more specific action plans to be implemented over a 12 to 18 month timeframe.
The AFM strategic
plan is a dynamic document that provides direction for the development
of annual performance plans. Consistent with the Government Performance
and Results Act (GPRA), the AFM strategic plan covers 6 years. The plan
will be revised as new strategic requirements arise or as our customer's
critical core service needs change.
