The draft Department of Health and Human Services FY 2014-2018 Strategic Plan is provided as part of the strategic planning process under the Government Performance and Results Modernization Act of 2010 (GPRA-MA) (Pub. L. 111-352) to ensure that Agency stakeholders are given an opportunity to comment on this plan.

This document articulates how the Department will achieve its mission through four strategic goals. These four strategic goals are (1) Strengthen Health Care, (2) Advance Scientific Knowledge and Innovation, (3) Advance the Health, Safety, and Well-Being of the American People, (4) Ensure Efficiency, Transparency, Accountability, and Effectiveness of HHS Programs. Each goal is supported by objectives and strategies.

The strategic planning consultation process is an opportunity for the Department to refine and strengthen the strategic goal structure currently in place. For comparison purposes, the current HHS Strategic Plan FY 2010-2015 can be viewed at​secretary/​about/​priorities/​priorities.html.

The Department has made significant progress in its strategic and performance planning efforts. As we build on this progress we look forward to receiving your comments by October 15, 2013.
