TITLE: OPPE Strategic Planning Pilot

ABSTRACT: The purpose of this project is threefold: (1) to conduct strategic planning within the Office of Program Planning and Evaluation (OPPE) to assess and focus the office's major activities to ensure that they will meet the evolving needs of the agency; (2) to develop and pilot a strategic planning framework within OPPE to assure consistent and linked planning, performance management and evaluation efforts; and (3) conduct an organizational assessment that will enhance the strategic planning framework by identifying roles, responsibilities, key business practices, and information needs and internal capacity requirements to implement strategic planning. Strategic planning capacity requirements may include identifying skills, management support, and systems and processes to support an integrated planning and evaluation system. The OPPE is responsible for leading and coordinating a diverse range of support activities for the Office of the Director, as well as coordinating and integrating legislative activities, special initiatives, committees, and reporting across CIOs, Operating Divisions within the Department of Health and Human Services, and Congress. OPPE activities range from a mixture of standard business practices to addressing unique, time dependent, political issues, or special assignments. With the passage of GPRA, integrating planning and evaluation processes agencywide has taken on greater importance for OPPE as it relates to external stakeholders, Congress, the Department of Health and Human Services and other operating divisions.
