The Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA) requires agencies to prepare strategic plans, annual performance plans and annual performance reports with measurable performance indicators to address the policy, budgeting and oversight needs of both Congress and agency leaders, partners/stakeholders, and program managers. In 2010, Congress passed the GPRA Modernization Act of 2010, which further requires a leadership-driven governance model with emphasis on quarterly reviews and transparency. The GPRA Modernization Act requires agencies to set priority goals linked to longer-term Agency strategic goals. Part 6 of Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-11 provides additional guidance and requirements for federal agencies to implement these laws. The NCUA Draft Strategic Plan 2018-2022 is issued pursuant to the GPRA, the GPRA Modernization Act, and OMB Circular A-11.

The NCUA 2018-2022 Draft Strategic Plan outlines how the agency will continue to effectively supervise and insure a growing and evolving credit union system. As the financial services and the credit union sector evolve, NCUA must adjust to meet the challenges the changes provide. In response, we are adopting new technology and analytical tools to improve the agency's offsite monitoring capabilities. Additionally, we are recalibrating our examination approach to reflect a more stable economic environment. We also are revising the agency's operations, priorities and structure to ensure our objectives match those prescribed in the Federal Credit Union Act, while at the same time efficiently using the agency's resources.

In the years ahead, NCUA also plans to advance meaningful regulatory relief by fully reevaluating our rules and working to modify them as appropriate, improving the uniformity of Start Printed Page 46298examinations, implementing an improved examination appeals process, and mitigating the largest risks to the Share Insurance Fund.

By publishing the proposed NCUA 2018-2022 Strategic Plan in the Federal Register, as well as posting it on our Web site at, NCUA continues its ongoing commitment to transparency about the agency's future plans and actions.
