GAO's strategic plan describes our goals and objectives to support the Congress in meeting its constitutional responsibilities and to ultimately help improve the safety, security, and well-being of the American people. The plan provides a comprehensive roadmap for increasing accountability across the full range of federal government operations.
To carry out its mission, GAO has four overall strategic goals that focus on 1) the well-being and financial security of the American people; 2) threats and challenges associated with national security and global interdependence; 3) transforming the federal government to address national challenges; and 4) maximizing the value of GAO as a leading practices federal agency.
In addition to this document, please see the other two components of GAO's 2018-2023 strategic plan:
- Key Efforts (GAO-18-395SP) that detail the near-term priorities and substantial bodies of work that will contribute to the accomplishment of our performance goals;
- Trends Affecting Government and Society (GAO-18-396SP) that provide the strategic context for our plan through an exploration of eight key trends having a major impact on the nation and its government.
