EOIR Strategic Plan Construct Overview

Strategic Plan Development

Every four years, federal agencies are required to update their strategic plan, which describes its work to address complex, multifaceted, and evolving issues. An agency’s strategic plan is one of three main elements required by the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) of 1993 and GPRA Modernization Act of 2010, P.L. 111-352, (GPRAMA). An agency’s strategic plan defines its mission, goals, objectives, and how it will measure its progress in addressing specific national problems over a four-year period. OMB Circular A-11:  Preparation, Submission, and Execution of the Budget, Part 6, Strategic Plans, Annual Performance Plans, Performance Reviews, and Annual Program Performance Reports also provides guidance on how to prepare a Strategic Plan. In FY 2021, DOJ completed its FY 2022 through 2026 Strategic Plan.

As a component of a federal agency, EOIR is not required to construct a strategic plan. However, as a best business practice, EOIR voluntarily chose to undertake the effort to build this strategic plan and has finalized it with encouragement and guidance from DOJ leadership and the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO). All data represented herein are through the end of FY 2023 (September 30, 2023).

Over the course of several years, all EOIR operating and staff components contributed to the development of the EOIR Strategic Plan FY 2024–2028, as reflected in its strategic goals, objectives, and strategies. EOIR has also considered inputs—both direct and indirect—from external EOIR customers and stakeholders in the buildout of this Plan.[1]
