E-M:/ Fed Reg on Strategic Plan NUREG-1614 / Comments due 9/7/07



Note the comment period ends this Friday. If you do nothing else, please contact your federal legislators and urge them to request an extension so that the public has adequate time to review this critical document.  who foot the bill for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. A 30 day comment period suggests that speed is more important than public input to the agency granting the comment period.e taxpayers, who foot the bill for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, may have adequate time to review this critical document and comment. This minimal comment period is surprising, when one of their strategies in this document is to:
  1. Provide for fair, timely, and meaningful stakeholder involvement in NRC decision-making... [and to] 
  2. Conduct early communication with stakeholders on issues of substantial interest.
Just glancing at this document, I personally feel this document is of substantial interest, and I also am aware that taxpayers are substantial stakeholders in any government agency.
Many thanks for any assistance you can give on this issue.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Government Performance and Results Act
(GRPA) requires that an agency's strategic plan be updated for
submission to the Congress and the President every three years. The NRC
is developing a new strategic plan for FY 2007-FY 2012 to replace the
agency's existing strategic plan.
    The NRC is seeking comments on its draft FY 2007-FY 2012 Strategic
Plan (ADAMS Accession No. ML072080203). The draft Strategic Plan
establishes the agency's long-term strategic direction and outcomes. It
provides a foundation to guide NRC's work and to allocate NRC's
resources.
    The NRC's draft FY 2007-FY 2012 Strategic Plan describes the
agency's mission, vision, and strategic objective, which remain
unchanged. The NRC's priority continues to be, as always, to ensure the
adequate protection of public health, safety, and the environment, and
promoting common defense and security.
    The NRC's draft Strategic Plan also reflects the changes taking
place in the regulatory environment associated with the use of
radioactive materials, such as the expected receipt of applications to
construct and operate new nuclear power plants, and the disposal of
high-level radioactive waste. Further, the draft Strategic Plan
addresses how the NRC will address these challenges, such as
communications, human capital, and regulatory and organizational
infrastructure.
    The draft Strategic Plan identifies our two strategic goals, which
focus on safety and security. The agency's Safety and Security goals,
as well as their associated strategic outcomes, continue to accurately
describe the agency's core functions, and therefore remain essentially
unchanged. This focus on safety and security ensures that the NRC
remains a strong independent, stable, and predictable regulator. The
draft Strategic Plan also describes the agency's Organizational
Excellence Objectives of Openness, Effectiveness, Timeliness, and
Management, which characterize the manner in which the agency intends
to support achieving the Safety and Security goals.
    The NRC encourages all interested parties to comment on the draft
Strategic Plan. The comment period ends September 7, 2007. Comments on
the draft plan are to be submitted in electronic format (Microsoft
Word) using e-mail to: StratPlan@nrc.gov or mailed to Chief, Rules and
Directives Branch, mail Stop T6-D59, Office of Administration, U.S.
Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555-0001; or faxed to:
Chief, Rules and Directives Branch at (301) 415-5144. Stakeholder
feedback will be valuable in helping the Commission develop a final
plan that has the benefit of the many views in the regulated civilian
nuclear industry.
    The final version of NUREG-1614, Volume 4, is expected to be
released on or about December 31, 2007.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 2nd day of August 2007.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Leslie W. Barnett,
Director, Division of Planning, Budget, and Analysis, Office of the
Chief Financial Officer.
