Agency's Mission and Vision

An agency's mission may be stated in statute or have a strong connection to the requirements and purpose of the agency stated in statute. It answers the question, "what is the agency to accomplish?"

An agency's vision is a statement of the agency's desired future state. It states (1) where the agency is headed, (2) what it aspires to, and (3) how it intends to be perceived. It is a tool for the agency to focus on its desired future.

Information about the agency's mission and vision is provided by the agency in its Annual Restructuring Report, Program Evaluation, Request for Information, or Accountability Report.
