The Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (OFHEO) is charged by Congress, as established in Title XIII of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1992, known as the Federal Housing Enterprises Financial Safety and Soundness Act of 1992, with the mandate of overseeing the Federal National Mortgage Association and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (Enterprises).
Three years ago, OFHEO adopted a Strategic Plan covering FY 2003-2008. Section 306 of the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA), 31 U.S.C. 1115 et seq., requires that agencies update and revise their Strategic Plans every three years. OFHEO is currently drafting a new plan for FY 2006-2011 that will describe the agency's mission, strategic goals and objectives, and strategies to achieve them. This plan will provide a framework for the years ahead. OFHEO uses its Strategic Plan to guide each year's performance goals, which are described in OFHEO's Annual Performance Budgets. They may be viewed on the OFHEO Web site at http://www.ofheo.gov in the “News Center & FOIA” section, “Reports” section.
In today's notice, OFHEO is soliciting the views and suggestions that may be considered in the development of its revised plan. Additionally, OFHEO will publish a draft plan on the OFHEO Web site in late summer and will continue to encourage comments. OFHEO will then submit its Strategic Plan to the President and the Congress, pursuant to the statutory requirements, and make it available to the public on the OFHEO Web site.Start Signature
