FY 2004-2009 Department of State and USAID Strategic Plan

This Strategic Plan was developed with the energies and talents of Department and USAID staff in Washington, D.C. and our offices and posts around the world. To these dedicated people, we would like to offer our sincerest thanks and acknowledgement.

In particular, we would like to thank all Under and Assistant Secretaries, Assistant Administrators, Ambassadors and Mission Directors, strategic goal team members, visioning session participants, bureau planners, Strategic and Performance Planning analysts, Policy and Planning Staff, and media services and Public Affairs specialists.

We also would like to acknowledge the invaluable comments and guidance provided by National Security Council directors, Office of Management and Budget and congressional staff, nongovernmental organizations, and former Ambassadors, Mission Directors, Assistant Secretaries, and agency heads.

Finally, we would like to offer a special thanks to the Department's Deputy Secretary and the USAID Administrator for their full support during this process.
