The Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) has announced its strategic direction for the next three years with the launch of the DIAC Strategic Plan 2008-11.
The Department says the document is a blueprint of how DIAC intends to manage its policies, programs and service delivery. The first DIAC plan was implemented in 2006-07, but this is the first time the Department has published a three-year strategic plan.
As well as broad visions for the agency’s work, the plan also provides the framework for the integration of budgets, priorities and plans for all levels of its business. An annual review process has been build into the plan to ensure it reflects government priorities over the next three years.
Several key actions for 2008-09 relate to the Department’s ICT:
- Produce an ICT strategic plan that delivers cost effective technology services and future strategies for the department. The plan specifies that the ICT strategic plan should be approved and implementation commenced during the current financial year.
- Deliver and maintain highly reliable, secure and efficient enabling technology for our staff. One of the key measures for this financial year is increased level of system availability to the service delivery network.
