II. Background In accordance with the Government Performance and Results Modernization Act (GPRAMA) of 2010, agencies are required to submit their strategic plans to Congress the year following the start of a presidential term. The Commission has approved a draft Strategic Plan and is now seeking comments from the public so that the agency may benefit from a wide range of stakeholder input to shape the NRC’s strategic direction for the upcoming planning period. III. Draft Strategic Plan The draft Strategic Plan describes the agency’s mission and its two strategic goals, which, although slightly reworded for clarity and readability, remain fundamentally unchanged from the current plan. The NRC’s mission is to license and regulate the Nation’s civilian use of radioactive materials to protect the public health and safety, promote the common defense and security, and protect the environment. Its two strategic goals are to ensure the safe use of radioactive materials and the secure use of radioactive materials. New elements of the plan include several strategic objectives with associated strategies and key activities that will be used to achieve the agency’s strategic goals. The draft strategies address the key challenges and external factors the agency will face as the regulatory environment continues to change during the upcoming planning period. Examples include processing license applications involving new technologies, such as small modular reactors and continued implementation of enhancements to improve reactor safety based on insights from the 2011 nuclear accident at Fukushima Dai-ichi. The continued globalization of nuclear technology and the nuclear supply chain is another factor that will affect the NRC, driving the need for increased international engagement on the safe and secure use of radioactive material and the need for new oversight approaches to ensure that foreign components used in U.S. nuclear E:\FR\FM\05MRN1.SGM 05MRN1 12532 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 43 / Wednesday, March 5, 2014 / Notices facilities are in compliance with NRC requirements.

Stakeholder feedback will be valuable in helping the Commission develop a final Strategic Plan that has the benefit of the many views of the public and the regulated civilian nuclear industry. The NRC will consider the comments submitted and may use them, as appropriate, in the preparation of the final Strategic Plan; however, the NRC does not anticipate responding to individual comments.
