Strategic Plan and Secretary’s Strategic Initiatives
HHS Strategic Plan (2010-2015)
The HHS Strategic Plan is one of three main elements required by the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) of 1993 (Public Law 103-62). An agency’s strategic plan defines its missions, goals, and the means by which it will measure its progress in addressing specific national problems, needs, or challenges related to its mission over the course of at least five years.
Every 4 years, HHS updates its strategic plan, which describes its work to address complex, multifaceted, and ever-evolving health and human service issues. Under the Government Performance and Results Modernization Act, Federal agencies are required to consult with the Congress and to solicit and consider the views of external parties. We welcome your input on the draft HHS Strategic Plan for FY 2014-2018. The comment period will close on October 15, 2013.
