Some notable changes include the following: reduction of duplicative or outdated goals and strategies; a new design, incorporating the DHS logo and color palette; larger type throughout the document; and the addition of a complementary addendum, defining DHS’ “stakeholders,” mentioned three times in the strategic plan to emphasize the agency’s important partnerships. A more accessible, text-only version was also created.
