Abstract

The premise of this study contends that the design of Agency Strategic Plans and Agency Performance Plans are inadequate and fail to provide the guidance and structure required to affect leader decision-making. Additionally, Strategic Plans and Agency Performance Plans fail to provide adequate scope, detail, guidance, and tools needed to integrate with an agency’s budget- and program-management systems. This study closely examines the content and structure of selected Agency Strategic Plans and Agency Performance Plans to determine if the structure, design, and content of these plans is conducive to supporting leader-based decision-making and providing for integration with a comprehensive budget- and performance-management system. The study closes with an examination into the relationship and effect the agency’s policy focus and its independence may have on the content and structure of these plans.
