Start: 2012-02-28, End: 2016-10-30, Publication: 2013-07-06


The U.S. Department of Homeland Security Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years (FY) 2012-2016 presents the Department's goals, derived from the conclusions of the Quadrennial Homeland Security Review (QHSR) and the Bottom-Up Review (BUR). The goals include objectives and key performance indicators that are essential for implementation and execution of the Department's responsibilities.

This Plan, like the QHSR process that preceded it, reflects the core principles identified in the Open Government Plan []. These three principles -- transparency, public participation, and collaboration -- are the basic tenets of Open Government. This Strategic Plan describes the Department's Strategic Performance Plan Measures in the context of the QHSR and the homeland security missions. The Plan continues the Department's efforts to prioritize frontline operations while maximizing the effectiveness and efficiency of every taxpayer dollar the Department receives. The Plan also describes the Department's efforts to provide essential support to national and economic security, and to mature and strengthen DHS as an institution.
