CIO introduction to IT Strategic Plan FY 2014-2016

On behalf of the employees who are dedicated to serving the Department of Justice’s (DOJ’s) vital mission through the effective management of our information resources, I am pleased to present this Information Technology Strategic Plan for fiscal years 2014 – 2016. The strategic goals and objectives in this plan were established within the context of the federated organizational structure that serves the Department’s diverse mission operations and customer groups.

The Office of the Chief Information Officer’s (OCIO’s) customers include DOJ’s major law enforcement and litigating component bureaus along with numerous smaller offices across the Department. Each has a vital role to play, and each relies on information technology to accomplish their unique mission.

DOJ’s most important customer is unquestionably the American public. OCIO’s efforts, whether indirectly through improving component bureaus’ capabilities or directly through sharing datasets via mobile apps, are intended to benefit the public whom we serve. Several of our goals and objectives are explicitly focused on serving the public, and we will continuously measure and improve our results over time.

The pressure to deliver greater, more cost-effective IT capabilities to end users underscores the importance of being responsible stewards of the taxpayer dollars that fund our investments. In partnership with the component bureaus, DOJ will execute the goals and objectives in this strategic plan in a way that not only optimizes our IT spending, but also improves the capabilities and services we deliver to the Department’s employees and the public at large.
