Science and Technical Support Section 2014 Business Plan Update

The Science and Technical Support Section (the section) has reviewed and updated its 2008 business plan. The effort included staff input, customer interviews, and workshops to generate pertinant information. The section’s mission is to provide scientific knowledge, information, and analysis in support of regional environmental resource management. Its work is well aligned with King County’s strategic plan, the Department’s business plan, and the Water and Land Resources Division’s (WLRD) business plan. Even with frequent changes in funding sources and work programs, the section has maintained its expertise and reputation for conducting high-quality environmental science and for providing science-based input to multiple projects, programs, and policy initiatives. 


Long term goals for the section include: incorporating equity and social justice into its daily business; maintaining regional leadership in environmental monitoring; ensuring that, and articulating how scientific information contributes to decision making on environmental issues facing King County, including climate change; developing and maintaining a strategic financial plan; improved communication; and maintaining a focus on customer service. Ten priority actions are identified for 2014.
