Department of State-USAID Joint Strategic Goal Framework and Agency Priority Goals
The FY 2013 Joint Summary of Performance and Financial Information is organized according to the 2010-2013 joint State-USAID strategic goal framework depicted below. In accordance with the Government Performance and Results Act Modernization Act of 2010 (GPRAMA), the State Department and USAID recently completed a FY 2014-2017 Joint Strategic Plan (JSP) and subsequent reporting will be aligned to the new plan. Additionally, beginning in FY 2012, the GPRAMA required federal agencies to establish a set of agency priority goals (APGs) that reflect the highest priorities of agency leadership to be achieved in a two year timeframe. The Department and USAID developed eight outcome-focused FY 2012-2013 APGs to measure progress towards advancing major foreign affairs and foreign assistance priorities. The FY 2012-2013 APGs align with four of the below State-USAID Joint Strategic Goals, with no APGs aligned to Strategic Goals one, four, and six. In tandem with the new FY 2014-2017 JSP, scheduled to be released in March 2014, the State Department and USAID will publish a new set of FY 2014-2015 APGs. The JSP will be posted on each agency's website and on www.Performance.gov.
A crosswalk of the Joint Strategic Goals and APGs is accessible in State's FY 2013 AFR.
