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... To achieve this overall mission, President Obama and Secretary Clinton have emphasized a number of strategic goals that respond to key U.S. foreign policy and national security priorities. Building upon the Secretary's vision and seven pillars of foreign policy, the Department and USAID have identified the following joint strategic goals... The new strategic goals are linked to the Department of State and USAID's new Agency Priority Goals (APGs). Per the GPRA Modernization Act of 2010, the Department and USAID have submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) eight outcome-focused APGs that reflect the Secretary's and USAID Administrator's highest priorities. These near-term goals advance the Joint Strategic Goals, reflect Department and USAID strategic and budget priorities and will continue to be of particular focus for the two agencies through FY2013.

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.
