The Florida Department of Corrections
The Strategic Plan includes the Department's mission statement, four basic Department goals, strategic initiatives, and objectives.
There are ten strategic initiatives listed in the Plan. Strategic initiatives identify general Department initiatives that the Department plans to accomplish in the next three to five fiscal years (i.e., July 1, 2000 - June 30, 2005). These initiatives are not prioritized; each will be pursued simultaneously.
Objectives for each initiative are designated by letters (i.e., a., b., c., etc.). The Department plans to accomplish these objectives in the next one to three years. Objectives are not prioritized, except where the sequence of occurrence requires one to be accomplished before another.
The Plan will be updated as necessary through the Office of Administration.
