Strategic Planning

Transform public service through a connected government

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. Our Strategic Plan is the foundation of our internal goals and priorities as an agency. The Strategic Plan aligns our goals and priorities with our mission, vision and guiding principles.

Two key documents provide the strategic direction for the agency - the Strategic Roadmap and Strategy Map. These are our tactical plans for delivering on our strategic plan.

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.
