Issue topics and goals:
Each issue is further divided by a series of topics, the context of which is explained by a condition description that provides sufficient background information and trend analysis for the reader to become familiar with the topic. Accompanying goal statements indicate the general thrust of department activities regarding each topic.
Objectives and Strategies:
At the conclusion of each topic's condition statement, objectives and strategies related to the topic are listed. Where possible, these dated, quantifiable objectives provide milestones to be reached, in pursuit of the topic goal. The objectives are related to the approved Performance Based Program Budgeting (PBPB) programs of the department. The PBPB programs are identified in parentheses following each objective. Specific strategic-level strategies describe the approaches to be used to ensure necessary actions are taken toward accomplishment of their related objective. Also following each objective is a projection table containing estimates of the incremental changes to be accomplished relative to the objective. References to Performance Based Program Budgeting programs are contained in parentheses after each objective where applicable.
