The Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) serves as a vital link in information transfer among Department of Defense (DoD) personnel, contractors and potential contractors as well as other U.S. Government agencies and their contractors. Since our inception at the end of World War II, we have fulfilled this mission by providing authenticated content and state-of-the-art information tools. However, no organization remains preeminent resting on past accomplishments. To continue to serve as a vital link, we must possess a clear vision of our goals and an innovative culture, able to respond rapidly to our customers needs in the fast-paced world of information exploitation. This Strategic Plan serves as DTIC's road map to the future and guides us in establishing the annual goals we need to meet along the way. It helps us measure how far we have come towards achieving our goals and to recognize where we need to adjust our direction in order to reach our planned destination. As the Executive Authority of this agency, I fully endorse this five year Strategic Plan and confirm my commitment to providing leadership to ensure its successful implementation.
