L. 111–352), 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; two-year Agency Priority Goals to advance progress toward the highest priorities; 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 Strategic Plan reflects the Administrator’s priorities for advancing the Agency’s mission to protect human health and the environment by setting three strategic goals: • Core Mission: Deliver real results to provide Americans with clean air, land, and water. • Cooperative Federalism: Rebalance the power between Washington and the states to create tangible environmental results for the American people. • Rule of Law and Process: Administer the law, as Congress intended, to refocus the Agency on its statutory obligations under the law. This Strategic Plan includes objectives and strategies for achieving the strategic goals, and establishes strategic measures and FY 2018–2019 Agency Priority Goals by which EPA will hold itself accountable to monitor progress in improving significantly the way EPA does business and environmental benefits, engaging closely with public sector partners at all levels and the regulated community.
