Strategic Planning Guidelines
The Survey of Organizational Excellence (SOE) is an important resource for the preparation of state organizations' strategic planning process as required by the Governor's Office of Budget & Planning (GOBP) and the Legislative Budget Board (LBB).  The survey can provide key information in many parts of the required external/internal assessment.  Survey participants are also requested to provide a synopsis of the most recent SOE results in Appendix K of their Strategic Plan.

Section 2113 of the Texas Government Code requires state agencies and institutions of higher learning to develop Customer Service standards and implement customer satisfaction plans.  These guidelines are also provided in the Strategic Planning Guidelines and require a separate report to the LBB.  The SOE Group can work with your organization to meet these standards.
