SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Section 306(d) of the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) (5 U.S.C. 306(d)) requires the Commission to seek comments from interested parties as part of the process of revising the current CPSC strategic plan. The strategic plan is a GPRA requirement. The revised plan will provide an overall guide to the formulation of future agency actions and budget requests.

The Office of Management and Budget requires all Federal agencies to submit their budget requests 13 months before the beginning of each fiscal year. The draft CPSC budget request for fiscal year 2009, which begins on October 1, 2008, is being formulated now by staff. The final budget request must reflect the contents of the agency's strategic plan developed under GPRA.

The Commission staff desires to obtain the views of a wide range of interested persons including consumers; manufacturers, importers, distributors, and retailers of consumer products; members of the academic community; consumer advocates; and health and safety officers of state and local governments on both the fiscal year 2009 budget and potential revisions to the strategic plan.

Written comments on the Commission's current strategic plan, and agenda and priorities for fiscal year 2009, should be received in the Office of the Secretary not later than July 20, 2007. Persons who desire a hard copy of the current strategic plan may contact the Office of the Secretary, Consumer Product Safety Commission, 4330 East West Highway, Bethesda, MD 20814, e-mail cpsc-os@cpsc.gov, telephone (301) 504-7923, facsimile (301) 504-0127.
