Our Strategic Goals

Our Strategic Goals

The Board has identified four interdependent strategic goals in support of the Board’s mission of safety oversight.  These strategic goals establish objectives for the Board’s safety oversight of DOE’s defense nuclear facilities.

  1. Improve Safety of Operations - Provide proactive and independent safety oversight of the defense nuclear complex.
  2. Strengthen Safety Standards - Enhance transparency of ongoing Agency initiatives and state of safety within the defense nuclear complex.
  3. Strengthen Safety in Design - Develop and maintain an outstanding workforce to achieve the Agency’s mission.
  4. Achieve Excellence in Management and Communication with Stakeholders - Maximize the DNFSB’s performance by pursuing excellence in our Agency culture and operations.

Our Strategic Plan

Our amended Strategic Plan was prepared after receiving significant feedback from the National Academy of Public Administration and the Office of the Inspector General.  It was prepared off-cycle with the intention that it will serve as the basis for any revision in future years.  This amended Strategic Plan will be the underpinning of our work planning and staffing going forward, and this amended Strategic Plan supersedes any prior Agency plans that were prepared before the FY 20 work and staffing plan.
