Comprehensive Roadmap

Roadmap Overview (PDF)

Through the annual comprehensive roadmap development process, SPP staff and stakeholders identify, educate, rank and approve new and existing initiatives for development over the next two to five years. The process ensures SPP is fulfilling the greatest needs for growth and enhancement, considering both economics and reliability. Moreover, the comprehensive roadmap process enables us to balance and understand our stakeholders’ diverse interests, placing us on a unified path to achieving our collective strategic goals and creating sustainable long-term value.

The roadmap fosters SPP’s value proposition and ensures the SPP Strategic Plan’s foundational strategies are driving initiatives. Alignment with the foundational strategies ensures SPP will continue to create the capabilities and operational processes necessary to fulfill SPP’s mission and improve its value propositions while being challenged by a rapidly changing environment.
