A Message from the Chairman

My fellow Commissioners and I are pleased to present the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission's Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years 2004 to 2009. The plan describes how we intend to accomplish our mission. In particular, it establishes our strategic direction by defining the agency vision, goals, outcomes, and strategies that we intend to pursue.

The new Strategic Plan incorporates a number of revisions in order to address a changing environment. The events of September 11, 2001, brought to this country a new recognition of the importance of physical security and emergency preparedness. We recognize that safety, security, and emergency preparedness are integrated activities, and we have revised the plan to reflect this new reality. The Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years 2004-2009 gives prominence to the value of openness in our regulatory processes as essential for ensuring that the NRC remains a strong, fair, predictable, and credible regulator. We continue to believe that our actions must be effective, efficient, realistic, and timely. Management excellence is also essential for successful implementation of our mission and goals.

In developing our Strategic Plan, we benefited from input from the public, those we regulate, and those interested in the effectiveness of regulation. We thank all our stakeholders who shaped the Strategic Plan, especially the NRC staff that has worked diligently to produce a Strategic Plan that we believe is comprehensive, clear, and can be readily understood. The Strategic Plan for 2004-2009 will serve as a guide for how we will discharge our responsibilities to serve the American public.
