The Department of the Interior has begun the process of revising its strategic plan that covers the period of FY 2000-2005.

The current plan, nine separate bureau and office plans and a Departmental Overview, will be replaced with a single, integrated plan.

Contrary to past practices of first publishing a draft plan for comment, the DOI is soliciting stakeholder views through a series of meetings and written comments on appropriate outcomes and strategies that the Department should achieve in six primary mission areas. These areas are:

1. Preservation of Natural and Cultural Resources.

2. Restoration of Natural and Cultural Resources.

3. Recreation Uses on Public Lands.

4. Use of Natural Resources (e.g., energy and non-energy minerals, timber, water, grazing land, etc.).

5. Meeting our Trust Responsibilities to Native Americans, Alaskan Natives, and Island Communities.

6. Role of Science in Meeting the Missions of the Department.

Information obtained from internal and external stakeholders will be used to develop a revised strategic plan that is consistent with the missions of the Department and the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) requirements.
