Abstract: The transformation that occurred in Indonesia since May 1998 has brought about a variety of change and reforms to the nation. Until recently, there have been no satisfactory results shown, particularly in the areas of organizational performance in the public sector. The success of the reform as well as the performance of government departments and agencies is depending on government strategic planning but prior studies argue that the relationship between strategic planning and organizational performance either in the private or public sector is inconsisten. This study aims to examine the relationship between strategic planning and organizational performance in the public sector. About 284 questionnaires were distributed to 671 government departments in 23 locals/districts in Aceh, Indonesian. Out of the total only 130 questionnaires were returned successfully. However, only 110 questionnaires were usable for further analysis which give the response rate at 45.77%. The study discovers a positive relationship between the strategic planning and organizational performance.
