The DFA entered the final phase of our Framework for Success implementation in 2019, and it has begun to inform the division’s strategic direction.
It works like this: The division’s priorities and projects are driven by Framework elements--our guiding principles, key performance indicators and key activities. Together these elements determine the division's specific actions, projects and priorities, which, in turn, directly advance actions in OSU's Strategic Plan 4.0.
For these reasons, division leaders determined in 2019 that the DFA does not require a stand-alone strategic plan. The previous DFA Strategic Plan for FY2017-19 (PDF) and its six initiatives were retired in 2019.
The DFA's five strategic priorities are listed below together with the Key Performance Indicators from which they emerge, and the SP4.0 actions they advance.
