During the review process, the NRC decided to issue the plan as an update to the existing FY 2008-2013 strategic plan that was published in February 2008. This was due tothe fact that there have been no substantial changes in the agency's mission and goals. However, to comply with the requirements of GPRAMA, the NRC is issuing an updated strategic plan. The updated strategic plan also takes into consideration the events that have occurred since the publication of the previous plan.
The NRC's updated FY 2008-2013 strategic plan describes the agency's mission and strategic goals, which remain unchanged. The NRC's priorities continue to be, as always, to ensure the adequate protection of public health and safety, promote the common defense and security, and protect the environment.
The updated strategic plan reflects the agency's Safety and Security goals, and their associated strategic outcomes. This focus on Safety and Security ensures that the NRC remains a strong, independent, stable, and effective regulator.
The updated strategic plan also describes the agency's Organizational Excellence strategies of Openness, Effectiveness, and Operational Excellence, which characterize the manner in which the agency intends to achieve its mission. The plan establishes the agency's long-term strategic direction and outcomes, and provides a foundation to guide the NRC's work and to allocate the NRC's resources.
