I am pleased to present the U.S. Department of Justice Strategic Plan for Information Technology for Fiscal Years (FY) 2019-2021. It reflects our vision for information management and the plan for modernizing IT to equip DOJ staff to better serve American citizens. The goals and strategies set forth in this document will help execute the mission by protecting, advancing, and optimizing DOJ’s capabilities and effectiveness.
The Strategic Plan provides specific areas DOJ will focus on throughout the Department and components to better meet customer needs, enable innovation in technology, manage risk, and reduce costs by moving to new models of service delivery. Over the next few years, we will focus on the key objectives outlined in this document to achieve operational excellence.
A critical component of our success in executing this Strategic Plan will rely on our ability to better invest in our workforce, foster strong relationships with our partners and end-users through the Department-provided Business Relationship Managers, and other collaboration efforts across components and the Department. As we collectively implement this Strategy, the role of DOJ components – our primary mission partners – is especially critical to our overall success. As we developed the DOJ IT Strategic Plan, we took into account the feedback components provided to the Department and specific pain points identified. We believe the objectives outlined in this document will help to resolve some of our greatest challenges, provide transparency, and build trust in DOJ IT systems and services.
I am grateful to the talented professionals working to achieve these goals and outcomes. DOJ’s IT professionals’ continued dedication and perseverance is our strongest tool to transform this vision into reality and deliver world-class IT services.
