The California Space Authority (CSA):

Trustee of the Nation's Largest Collaborative Space Enterprise
Strategic Planning/Plan Implementation Effort

Since 1998, when the California Space Authority was commissioned by the State of California to create the first-ever statewide space enterprise strategic plan, the California Space Authority (CSA) has served as the "trustee" of strategic planning for the California space enterprise community. The 1998 California Space Strategic Plan was the first statewide collaborative space planning effort in the U.S. involving all three domains: commercial, civil and national security. It received international attention from countries like France and Japan, as well as attention from other states. It was the first plan to engage a broad, collaborative stakeholder base of hundreds of planning participants that included industry, economic development and workforce entities, education/academia and government. Most importantly, it was the first plan to leverage statewide and national space assets and resources through innovative, collective implementation of objectives designed by stakeholders themselves.

The California space enterprise tradition of collaborative, consensus-based strategic planning has continued now for a decade, with the California Space Authority facilitating development and implementation of the 2004 California Space Enterprise Strategic Plan and also development of the California Space Enterprise Strategic Plan 2007-2010, which is now being implemented collaboratively statewide. CSA has established the Space Enterprise Advisory Council (SEAC) to guide collaborative strategic planning efforts on behalf of the CSA Board of Directors. Topic-oriented Collaboratives and Working Groups are the mainstay of the implementation effort (see the org chart below).

California is the largest space enterprise state in the nation (fact sheet). It is home to thousands of space suppliers, with every major space company and government entity present, as well. If you are a California space stakeholder -- industry, government, economic development or otherwise -- ensure yourself a spot in planning the future of California space enterprise. View the current and previous strategic plans, click on the surrounding links and find your best spot for participating in the most innovative collaborative space enterprise planning effort on the planet. Or contact Jamie Foster, COO, California Space Authority, for information about how participating in California space enterprise strategic planning can support your organization's objectives.

Space Enterprise Advisory Council (SEAC)
Guidance and Support for California Space Enterprise Strategic Plan

A representative body of statewide space enterprise stakeholders from commercial, civil, and national security space activities plus key local, state and national space stakeholders, the SEAC supports the CSA Board of Directors in providing guidance and expertise on developing and implementing the California Space Enterprise Strategic Plan.

The California Space Authority (CSA):
ÒTrusteeÓ of the California Space Enterprise Strategic Plan

In 1998, the California Space Authority developed the first-ever California Space Strategic Plan, bringing together statewide space stakeholders from public and private entities in all three domains: commercial, civil and national security space. Thereafter the ÒtrusteeÓ of statewide space enterprise strategic planning, CSA in 2004 coordinated development of the 2004 California Space Enterprise Strategic Plan. Thirteen entities co-sponsored the 2004 Plan, 345 public and private sector space stakeholders representing 146 organizations participated in its creation. At the heart of the Plan were five strategic initiatives, with statewide implementation Collaboratives organized around each initiative: Space Enterprise Business Development, Retention and Growth (BDRG); California Space Industrial Base Vitality (CSIBV); Space Science, Research and Technology Development (SRTD); Space Education and Workforce Development (EWD); Public and Policymaker Awareness (PPA). During its three year implementation period, the 2004 Plan has also generated three working groups: Space Manufacturing (SMG), New Space Professionals (NSPWG); Small Business (SBG).

The 2004 California Space Enterprise Strategic Plan implementation period ends at the end of 2006. To ensure continuity of California space enterprise strategic planning, CSA will be coordinating final implementation of the 2004 Plan in conjunction with development of a new Ò2007-2009 California Space Enterprise Strategic PlanÓ in the coming months. The Collaboratives and working groups mentioned above will share responsibility for both, with the California Space Enterprise Advisory Council (SEAC) providing guidance and direction in support of the California Space Authority Board of Directors.
