OIG Strategic Plan

The OIG Strategic Plan is the result of a collaborative and inclusive process that engages internal and external stakeholders.

The Plan also sets the foundation for the transformational change we want to achieve during the next several years by focusing on our mission priorities and setting forth the values and behaviors underpinning the culture needed for us to succeed. The following are excerpts from the Plan which can be accessed here.
