FMC Press Release Posted January 18, 2022 -- The Federal Maritime Commission (FMC or Commission) invites comments on its Proposed FY 2022-2026 Strategic Goals and Stewardship Objective. Comments on the Commission’s Proposed Strategic Goals and Objective must be submitted on or before January 31, 2022.
Under this proposal, the FMC’s two Strategic Goals have added new objectives and performance measures to better measure new reporting requirements and functions adopted since the previous strategic plan was adopted. These include a comprehensive monitoring program under 46 U.S.C. § 40102(5) (objective 1.2) and license renewals (objective 2.2). The proposal also adds a performance measure for field operations outreach (objective 2.1).
Along with the proposed Strategic Goal changes, the proposal includes a new Stewardship Objective – to advance the FMC’s mission through organizational excellence and efficiency. The proposed sub-objectives track continuity of operations, financial management, information technology optimization (including cybersecurity), and workforce engagement and performance.
The proposed goals and objectives will be included in the FMC’s next Strategic Plan, which guides the FMC’s performance and activities it undertakes to meet its mission. The FMC’s mission is to ensure a competitive and reliable international ocean transportation supply system that supports the U.S. economy and protects the public from unfair and deceptive practices.
The final Strategic Plan incorporating the goals and objectives will replace the current FY 2018-2022 Strategic Plan.
