Strategic Planning

The Virginia State Capitol

The Department of Planning and Budget's responsibilities in the Code of Virginia (Sections 2.2-1501) related to strategic planning and performance measurement include:

Development, coordination and implementation of a performance management system involving strategic planning, performance measurement, evaluation, and performance budgeting within state government. The Department shall ensure that information generated from these processes is useful for managing and improving the efficiency and effectiveness of state government operations, and is available to citizens and public officials.

Virginia Performs, a signature initiative of the Council on Virginia's Future, is a performance leadership and accountability system within state government. Virginia Performs aligns specific state government outcomes with larger statewide goals. The Department of Planning and Budget works with state agencies to develop and report on performance metrics linked to statewide goals through agency strategic plans and performance measures.
