VA’s FY2014-2020 Strategic Plan is now available online. We greatly appreciate all the input we received from our partners, stakeholders and Veterans to help write this plan.
In the spring of 2012, consultations were held with Congress, the National Association of State Directors of Veterans Affairs, Veterans service organizations, military service organizations, VA’s unions and VA advisory committees and the American public via a Federal Register Notice.
The Strategic Plan incorporates VA’s FY2014-2015 Agency Priority Goals which are to improve Veteran access to VA benefits and services, eliminate the disability claims backlog and eliminate Veteran homelessness. The Strategic Plan also outlines longer-term goals and objectives that place a strong emphasis on defining success by Veteran outcomes; enhancing the quality of and access to benefits and services through integration within VA and with our partners; and developing our workforce with the skills, tools and leadership to meet our clients’ needs and expectations.
VA’s three strategic goals are:
- Empower Veterans to Improve Their Well-being
- Enhance and Develop Trusted Partnerships
- Manage and Improve VA Operations to Deliver Seamless and Integrated Support
This plan puts an emphasis on putting the Veteran in control of how, when and where they wish to be served. It continues to transform VA into a 21stst Century organization to better serve our clients.
