The NRC has developed a new strategic plan for FY 2008-2013 that updates the agency's current strategic plan. The Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years 2008-2013 describes the strategies and means by which the NRC intends to accomplish its mission, which is to “license and regulate the Nation's civilian use of byproduct, source, and special nuclear materials to ensure adequate protection of public health and safety, promote the common defense and security, and protect the environment.”
The Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years 2008-2013 has two goals: Safety and Security. The agency's safety goal is to ensure adequate protection of public health and safety and the environment. Specific strategies are identified in the strategic plan to achieve the agency's safety strategic outcomes: prevent the occurrence of reactor accidents, inadvertent criticality events, releases of radioactive materials that result in significant radiation exposures, fatalities or adverse environmental impacts.
The agency's Security goal is to ensure adequate protection in the secure use and management of radioactive materials. To achieve this goal, specific strategies are identified in the strategic plan to achieve the agency's security strategic outcome to prevent any instances where licensed radioactive materials are used domestically in a manner hostile to the United States.
In addition to these two strategic goals, the agency has three Organizational Excellence Objectives: Start Printed Page 9363Openness, Effectiveness, and Operational Excellence. These objectives support the agency's activities to achieve its Safety and Security goals as well as to function as a strong, independent, stable, and predictable regulator.
The final version of NUREG-1614, Volume 4, will be released on February 15, 2008.Start Signature
