In fiscal 2019, DLA had an amazing year full of significant accomplishments – thanks to DLA’s “Secret Sauce” – our phenomenal workforce. I thank each of you for your hard work and dedication to take our agency to the next level as we supported DoD priorities to improve military readiness, strengthen alliances and bring about business reforms.
The global security environment remains extremely complex and DLA must remain postured to support our operational military forces and industrial facilities across the Department of Defense. In this environment, the DLA Strategic Plan is our Agency’s mainstay. It aligns our strategic objectives with the National Defense Strategy and Secretary of Defense priorities. The Plan’s dynamic framework allows us to remain agile while focusing on our mission requirements and priorities.
Supporting the warfighter demands continued commitment to the amended 2018-2026 DLA Strategic Plan and its five Lines of Effort (Warfighter First, Global Posture, Strong Partnerships, Whole of Government and Always Accountable), Critical Capabilities and Cross-Cutting Efforts. Within this construct, we will focus on six major areas in the coming fiscal year: Warfighter and Federal Support, Defense Reforms, Audit Advancement, Financial Health of the Agency, Enterprise Risk Management and Innovation.
These six focus areas, within the framework of our support to the National Defense Strategy, demand our complete focus. Thank you in advance for your commitment to these critical mission areas.
- Former DLA Director Army Lt. Gen. Darrell K. Williams
