SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The GPRA Modernization Act holds federal agencies accountable for using resources wisely and achieving program results. Specifically, the GPRA Modernization Act requires agencies to develop: Strategic Plans, which include a mission statement, set out long-term goals, objectives, and strategic measures, and describe strategies to achieve them over a four-year time horizon; Annual Performance Plans, which provide annual performance measures and activities toward the long-term Strategic Plan; and, Annual Performance Reports, which evaluate an agency’s success in achieving the annual performance measures. The Draft FY 2014–2018 EPA Strategic Plan reflects the Administrator’s themes for advancing EPA’s mission. The Plan presents five strategic goals to accelerate protection of human health and the environment and four cross-cutting fundamental strategies for changing the way the agency does business in achieving its results. The five strategic goals are: Addressing Climate Change and Improving Air Quality; Protecting America’s Waters; Cleaning Up Communities and Advancing Sustainable Development; Ensuring the Safety of Chemicals and Preventing Pollution; and Protecting Human Health and the Environment by Enforcing Laws and Assuring Compliance. The four cross-cutting fundamental strategies are: Working Toward a Sustainable Future; Working to Make a Visible Difference in Communities; Launching a New Era of State, Tribal, Local, and International Partnerships; and Embracing EPA as a High-Performing Organization. The Strategic Plan also identifies a suite of strategic measures by which the agency will hold itself accountable.
