Past HHS Strategic Plans

An agency strategic plan is one of three main elements required by the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) of 1993 (Public Law 103-62).  An agency’s strategic plan defines its missions, goals, and the means by which it will measure its progress in addressing specific national problems, needs, or challenges related to its mission over the course of at least five years.  In the past, HHS updated its strategic plan every three years; however, GPRA was amended in 2010 (GPRA Modernization Act), and now requires agency strategic plans to be updated every four years.

The current HHS Strategic Plan, FY 2014 – 2018, was published 2014 and is periodically updated to reflect the Department’s strategies, actions, and progress toward its goals.  The Strategic Plan, provides priorities, accomplishments, and next steps that are tracked and updated frequently, reinforcing the Strategic Plan’s function as a living, vital document that serves a genuine management purpose.
