WaTech's strategic planning is focused on aligning technology strategy with the governor’s goals, the Washington Enterprise IT Strategic Plan, and agency strategic goals and initiatives. Two key documents provide the strategic direction for the agency - the Strategic Roadmap and Strategy Map.
WaTech Strategic Roadmap
WaTech began its strategic planning in 2019, developing the 2019-2022 Strategic Roadmap and publishing it on Aug. 1, 2019. The Strategic Roadmap is the blueprint that guides the agency's strategic goals and initiatives.
The 2021-2023 Strategic Roadmap was updated and expanded in late 2021 and takes a more comprehensive view to include all WaTech’s external facing initiatives across key domains. Cybersecurity and cloud computing policies, risk and security protection/management, and the expansion, decommissioning and modernization of WaTech services are key drivers.
With the 2021-2023 Strategic Roadmap in place, WaTech will be able to accelerate the state’s cloud architecture, modernize and expand services and delivery, and establish stronger security and privacy protections.
