Our current implementation plan is being revised as part of our strategic planning realignment with the new NOAA National Sea Grant College Program 2014-2017 Strategic Plan.
Bringing Maryland Sea Grant’s strategic vision to life requires both definitive goals and appropriately ambitious benchmarks against which actions can be assessed over time. Our Implementation Plan is a clear articulation of the steps we will take as a program to achieve impacts. The plan identifies how our integrated research, outreach, and education efforts link to our strategic goals. In the best sense, the Implementation Plan represents our commitment to fulfilling our mission in an efficient and accountable manner. The Plan not only enables tracking of ongoing programs, but provides an important context for new, often proactive efforts that take advantage of the creative energies — both internal and external — that Maryland Sea Grant engages. Progress toward fulfilling the benchmarks identified in the plan is evaluated annually and the plan itself revised on a biennial basis.
