Our first Strategic Plan which was published in October 2003 was a major accomplishment and provided a solid foundation and framework for how we will assure the Departments information. The Vision and Goals in our Strategic Plan are enduring and serve to define a consistent strategic direction to assuring our information. As we stated last year the Strategic Plan is a living document and we are committed to updating the Plan to ensure our efforts remain a vital and accurate reflection of the major issues facing the Department. We have aligned our investments and strategic initiatives to our Goals and are continuing to define and track milestones and performance measures to gauge their success. While the overall framework and basic tenets of the Strategic Plan are still valid we are placing a greater emphasis on a number of areas to reflect the strategic priorities of the Department We have refined the mission statement to reflect the critical role of IA in the Net-Centric Warfare NOW mission and to address the priorities of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Networks and Information Integration NII. We have refined strategic and performance objectives for Goals 1 2 and 3 to provide a strategic focus on Net-centric transformation and the need for an enterprise IA architecture and policy. Additional emphasis has been placed on the implementation and deployment of key capabilities such as Public Key Infrastructure PKI biometrics and the transformation of the Security Management Infrastructure SMI. We have refined strategic and performance objectives for Goal 4 to provide a stronger emphasis on full lifecycle integration for IA throughout the acquisition process and increased accountability through program management and perform performance measurement.
