Background Back to Top
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) completed its Next Generation Strategic Plan (NGSP) in December of 2010. The NGSP outlines NOAA's long-term goals and objectives. The Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research, one of five Line Offices within NOAA, has developed its strategic plan in line with the NGSP to ensure the success of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
The strategic plan describes OAR's long-term goals along with specific objectives that will be pursued over the next five years. Each objective will be pursued and evaluated against outcome-oriented performance measures to determine level of progress. The plan emphasizes OAR core competencies and encourages the pursuit of pre-eminent research and science integrity. Ultimately, this plan provides the framework that OAR will use to deliver significant benefits to society while working to advance NOAA's mission of science, service, and stewardship.
