Purpose of Mission, Goals, Objectives
The NASA Strategic Plan establishes the Agency's mission and long-term strategic goals and sub-goals and forms the basis for NASA's mission. The Agency mission is achieved through strategic goals/objectives, which are pursued tactically through specific performance goals. Performance goals, which are synonymous with requirements, are met through programs and projects and are traceable down to individual performance plans.
How Mission, Goals, Objectives Support NASA's Mission
The Mission Support Plan (MSP) establishes mission support goals that will support achievement of NASA's strategic goals and sub-goals. The Mission Support Integration Plan (MSIP) defines and integrates specific goals, objectives, and risks to achieving the goals across five mission support functional areas: workforce, infrastructure, finance, information systems, and management systems.
As a NASA Headquarters mission support organization, EMD will develop an Annual Operating Plan that explains how the Division supports the NASA Strategic Plan, the MSIP, and the Office of Strategic Infrastructure Implementation Plan. Specific outcomes, measures and metrics will be developed for each strategic focus area to track our effectiveness in implementing the MSP goals and objectives.
