The Federal Trade Commission has released its draft Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years 2018 to 2022 for public review and comment, as required under the GPRA Modernization Act of 2010, using guidance issued by the Office of Management and Budget. Every four years, government agencies are required to prepare and submit an updated strategic plan covering activities for at least the following five years. The FTCs last updated strategic plan was prepared in FY 2013.
This plan presents strategic goals and objectives for the next five years. It details how the plan will be implemented in the areas of consumer protection, maintaining competition, and organizational performance. The plan also explains external factors affecting achievement of the goals, as well as evaluation and research efforts.
Public comments on the draft pan may be submitted until Dec. 3, 2017. (The staff contact is Chris Bryan, Financial Management Office, 202-326-2005.)
