Abstract:

The purpose of this strategic plan is to focus and guide our actions in the Chemical and Biological Defense Program CBDP. Our immediate responsibility is to develop, deliver, and support the systems that provide strategic resilience - systems flexible enough to detect, protect, and remediate attacks by terrorists or hostile forces using a variety of Weapons of Mass Destruction devices. Our future responsibility is to provide the direction the CBDP must take for the far-term. This plan is grounded in our National Strategies and reflects our Strategic vision, mission, and goals. The CBDP vision is to ensure DoD operations are unconstrained by Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear CBRN effects. The CBDP mission is to provide CBRN defense capabilities in support of our national military strategies. We undertake this vision and mission in partnership with Congress, other federal agencies, academia, international partners, and the private sector. Central to the success of the CBDP is how we measure and report progress toward achieving the four overarching, interrelated strategic goals addressing our operational, future, institutional, and management program challenges. To this end, as a team we must remain forward thinking, responsive to warfighter and national security needs, and empowered with the accountability and authority vested in specific executives.
