2016 - 2019 Strategy

The OAG’s strategy for 2016 to 2019 sets out the priorities for action over this period, with the goal of using the available resources as effectively as possible.

Maintaining the freedom to take action

By setting priorities in the different areas of offences, the OAG can maintain a certain degree of freedom within the framework of its federal jurisdiction, and so can make effective use of its human and financial resources. The priorities are subject to regular review and are adjusted where necessary in response to developments. The OAG has identified three priority areas for the coming years:

> International money laundering and corruption
> Criminal and terrorist organisations
> Crimes against state security

Quality for effective prosecution

> Consolidation and implementation of procedural controls
> Training and continuing professional education to ensure that OAG and FCP employees have the requisite knowledge and skills
> Consolidation and implementation of a coherent doctrine and the uniform application of the law through effective knowledge management
> Cooperation with partner authorities
> Providing leadership on specific themes
> Professional, target-group-oriented communication

Efficiency

> Introducing needs-oriented technical solutions
> Linking content with methodological skills
>  The measures mentioned in relation to quality are also measures that may be used to improve efficiency:

> Consolidation and implementation of procedural controls
> Training and continuing professional education to ensure that OAG and FCP employees have the requisite knowledge and skills
> Consolidation and implementation of a coherent doctrine and the uniform application of the law through effective knowledge management
