Comments Requested on Commerce's Strategic Plan

August 08, 1997

The Department of Commerce is soliciting comments on its draft Strategic Plan, which enunciates a mission statement, strategic themes, and goals and objectives for its programs. This 122-page plan responds to the Government Performance and Results Act's (GPRA) requirement that each agency prepare a Strategic Plan that aligns its programs and activities to its mission. The GPRA identifies stakeholder consultation as a key part of this strategic planning process.

The central role of technology in promoting economic growth of the nation is recognized in both the Department's mission and its plan. The plan is available on the Internet at www.doc.gov/ bmi/ BUDGET/ STRTDRFT/strtoc.htm or by calling SSTI. Comments about the Department's plan may be sent via e-mail to John Fassett at <john.fassett@nist.gov>
