PRC Publishes Strategic Plan Outlining Five-Year Vision

Washington, DC – Today the Postal Regulatory Commission introduced a new Strategic Plan that will guide the Commission in its planning, activities, and initiatives over the next five years. The Plan outlines the agency’s vision to promote a robust universal mail system through objective, accurate, and timely regulatory analyses and decisions.

The Strategic Plan was developed following a vigorous and inclusive process which incorporated input from all Commission employees.

Acting Chairman Robert Taub said, “Strategic planning and goal setting is important for any organization; such efforts help to articulate priorities and focus key efforts. The coming years present many potential changes, and challenges, for the Commission. I am confident this Plan provides the Commission a clear and comprehensive course to meet our mission to ensure transparency and accountability of the Postal Service and foster a vital and efficient universal mail system.”

The Plan identifies four strategic goals, key objectives, and performance indicators to measure progress:

  • Strategic Goal 1: Deliver accurate and objective analyses and decisions to ensure transparency and accountability of the Postal Service.
     
  • Strategic Goal 2: Actively engage with Congress and stakeholders in support of a dynamic postal system.
     
  • Strategic Goal 3: Provide an optimal internal infrastructure to support management of priorities, workload, and emerging requirements.
     
  • Strategic Goal 4: Recruit, develop, and retain a diverse, high-performing workforce.

The Strategic Plan for 2017-2022 is available on the Commission’s website, www.prc.gov.
