Behind all great operations is a great support team, and the Business Planning Section keeps SED running while program inspectors and permitting teams safeguard the Florida environment. Just as in business, today's government operations need to be optimized to run on the smallest budget possible. The Business Planning team brings systematic business planning methods into DEP to help reduce costs while optimizing our overall operational performance. The benefits of business planning include:  

  • Creating long range strategic plans

  • Taking into consideration the office environmental and technological factors that can influence the district's plans significantly

  • Integrating SED's strategic plan with other district and state level organizations' plans and priorities

  • Helping the SED to achieve its objectives and goals

  • Providing a view of the organization in total rather than by department

  • Helping map out and optimize SED operational processes
