The development of the 2011-2016 Plan followed an approach similar to our first 5-year plan in 2004-2005. More than one-third of the Agency staff participated in and contributed to the development of the Plan, and all staff participates in its implementation. We review and update the plan annually, and welcome comments and feedback.
