Strategic Plan

CSIO’s strategic plan was developed by conducting a thorough review of the internal and external environment, by reviewing the recommendations contained in its business plan, and through extensive discussions with staff, Board and stakeholders. An important component of the strategic planning process was renewing the CSIO’s commitment to its mission and vision and identifying and defining a core set of values to help ensure consistency in decision-making across the organization. The strategic plan is intended to inform stakeholders about what the organization will be focusing on over the next four years and articulates a set of core activities along with specific goals that the CSIO is striving to achieve over this timeframe.
