The effort to produce a Departmental strategic plan was precipitated by a 1992 WildlifeManagement Institute assessment of the Department that identified needs for vision, planning,constituent involvement, and improved decision making. The initial version was completed in1994 by a planning team comprised of Department technical and administrative staff and arepresentative member of the State Game Commission. It has since evolved through a number of iterations under successive administrations and Commissions. This latest revision has emergedout of an intensive collaborative effort by the Department’s directorate and managers to addresscurrent and anticipated issues and to support the requirements of New Mexico’s performance-based budgeting initiative. It remains the primary map for realizing our Vision.Department services are partitioned into four programs, logically aggregated by acommonality of statutory purpose and outcome:I.
Sport Hunting and Fishing ProgramII.
Conservation Services ProgramIII.
Wildlife Depredation and Nuisance Abatement ProgramIV.
Administration ProgramThese programs, their goals, and objectives are structured to recognize people as theprimary beneficiaries of our work. Even the Administration Program, comprised of functionstoo easily perceived as ends, serves primarily to provide the organizational direction, resources,and performance needed to assure the outcomes people expect from the other three programs.This plan will eventually be supported by a currently evolving structure of subprogram-levelmanagement plans and implemented through a project-based operational planning process.Planning at all levels has been, and will continue to be, informed by public participation.
