DTRA releases 2016-2020 Strategic Plan

The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), along with the United States Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM) Center for Combating Weapons of Mass Destruction (SCC-WMD) and the Joint Force Headquarters for Elimination (SJFHQ-E), released its 2016-2020 strategic plan on Thursday.

The four-point plan functions as a roadmap to better protect the U.S. from a potential weapon of mass destruction, along with other disasters that may occur. The plan specifically calls for making the world safer, safeguarding the U.S. and its allies from global WMD threats through internal functions, functioning as a team, and effectively using the proper resources at their disposal.

“With this strategic plan, we have updated our collective approach guiding each of our organizations as they continue to improve, change, and adapt,” the command group’s statement said. “Our commitment to the mission – to safeguard the United States and its allies from global weapons of mass destruction threats by integrating, synchronizing, and providing expertise, technologies, and capabilities – is supported by the approach we have adopted and the objectives we have chosen.”

The strategic plan is the result of a methodology that accounts for risk and opportunity; including policy alignment to national security defense strategies; scenario-based planning to help anticipate a wide spectrum of evolving threats; interviewing focus groups with the workforce, leaders and external stakeholders; and SWOT workshops to analyze, assess and prioritize internal and external factors affecting mission accomplishments.
