II. Background

    In accordance with the Government Performance and Results (GPRA) 
Modernization Act 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 help shape the NRC's 
strategic direction for the upcoming planning period.

III. Draft Strategic Plan

    The NRC is an independent agency established by the Energy 
Reorganization Act of 1974 that began operations in 1975 as a successor 
to the Atomic Energy Commission. The NRC's mission is to license and 
regulate the Nation's civilian use of radioactive materials to provide 
reasonable assurance of adequate protection of public health and safety 
and to promote the common defense and security and to protect the

the agency's strategic goals.
    The NRC encourages all interested parties to comment on the draft 
Strategic Plan, particularly on the plan's goals, objectives, and 
strategies. 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 preparing explicit responses to each 
comment.
