SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: As part of its ongoing efforts to enhance stakeholder communication and information sharing, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is hosting an open meeting with all interested stakeholders to discuss the Agency’s budget, pending program restructuring and potential impacts, and several cross-Agency strategic priorities. Like all Federal agencies, APHIS is facing a number of new and evolving challenges, including decreasing budgets, fewer available resources, and the continued need to successfully balance science, policy, and public opinion. As we plan for how to position APHIS to meet these and other challenges, our commitment to our animal and plant health mission remains firm. In keeping with this commitment, we want to continue to improve our business strategies and program delivery methods to enhance our overall effectiveness. As we begin to consider new opportunities and rethink current business practices, we want to engage our stakeholders in a dialog early in the process to ensure we’re in alignment with our customers’ needs. In particular, we are interested in your perspective regarding: • Public and private partnerships, such as disease management and eradication programs that benefit from State and industry contributions. • Non-regulatory solutions, such as compliance and education programs that can be used, when appropriate, to achieve results without the need for rulemaking. • New technology that encourages commerce or enhances APHIS’ ability to protect American agriculture. • Customer service improvements that make it easier for stakeholders to do business with APHIS. These are just a few examples; we believe many additional opportunities exist under the broad priorities of public and private partnerships, non-regulatory solutions, new technology and customer service. APHIS will speak to how the Agency is considering and already using these cross-Agency strategic priorities in greater depth at the public meeting. Ultimately, we believe stakeholders are in a unique position to provide insight and offer up new approaches that will enable APHIS to more effectively carry out our animal and plant mission and better serve our many customers. You may submit your thoughts and feedback by responding to this notice (see ADDRESSES above) or by emailing E:\FR\FM\12MRN1.SGM 12MRN1
