Fiscal Year Priorities and Action Plan

Each year, SDCERS’ Board of Administration and staff leadership agree on a set of top priorities that support our Mission and Vision statements. In turn, the SDCERS management team develops a list of action plans to support those top priorities. These action plans are typically above and beyond the regular daily business conducted by staff, and may take more than one year to complete. The number of priorities and supporting action plan items in any given year is based on the needs of the organization, the Board of Administration, and the participants in SDCERS. View this year’s top priorities and action plans below. We look forward to sharing a report card on how we did at the end of the fiscal year.
