The Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has initiated a strategic planning process that will culminate in the ODS Strategic Plan for 2015-2020. To assist with this process, the ODS requests input from research communities—academic, government, and industry—and from other interested parties.
In order to ensure full consideration, all responses must be submitted by midnight, March 6, 2015.
Interested individuals and organizations should submit their responses to ODSplan@od.nih.gov.

The overall purpose of the strategic planning effort is to identify both new opportunities and emerging needs for incorporation in the programmatic efforts of the Office. A background paper, ODS Strategic Plan 2010-2014 Progress Report, summarizes progress in five key areas of ODS activities. The background paper and related information are available on the ODS Web site at http://ods.od.nih.gov/strategicplan.
Guidance is being requested from all interested parties on these important issues.
- Are the current strategic goals adequate?
- Is ODS meeting its stakeholders' needs?
- In the future, should some of ODS's current programs or activities be given higher (or lower) priority?
- How can ODS more effectively provide useful information to the ODS user community, including consumers, investigators, practitioners, industry, media, policy makers, government, and other interested parties?
