2011-2016 STRATEGIC PLAN ADDENDUM

FOR THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE and the U.S. AGENCY FOR INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Per the GPRA Modernization Act, P.L. 111-352, requirement to address Federal Goals in the agency Strategic Plan and Annual Performance Plan, please refer to Performance.gov for information on Federal Priority Goals and the agency’s contributions to those goals, where applicable.

Mission Statement for the Department and USAID: Shape and sustain a peaceful, prosperous, just, and democratic world and foster conditions for stability and progress for the benefit of the American people and people everywhere.

The National Security Strategy, the Presidential Policy Directive on Global Development (PPD), and the Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review (QDDR) define the strategic priorities that guide global engagement jointly at the Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and identify the diplomatic and development capabilities needed to advance U.S. interests.

Strategic planning and performance management are guided by the QDDR and the recently-enacted GPRA Modernization Act of 2010. The QDDR serves as the new State-USAID Joint Strategic Plan (JSP), and sets institutional priorities and provides strategic guidance as a framework for the most efficient allocation of resources. The QDDR also includes directives for improving how Posts do business, from strengthening interagency collaboration to increasing State and USAID engagement with civil society, the private sector and others. State and USAID are committed to using performance management best practices to meet their challenges in order to ensure the most effective U.S. foreign policy outcomes and greater accountability to the American people.
