DOT opens online dialogue on our next Strategic Plan
The U.S. Department of Transportation has been working on our strategic plan for FY 2014 to FY 2018 since early this spring. Developing and implementing our strategic plan is an important step in helping the Department address key priorities that represent the diverse interests of our stakeholders across the country.
Transportation is an engine for growing our economy and creating American jobs. Every day, people and businesses rely on a multi-modal transportation system to travel and to move goods to consumers at home and abroad. We know that wherever we invest in transportation infrastructure, opportunities for countless Americans follow. So we want to ensure that our strategic plan serves as a foundation for building, operating, and maintaining a safe and efficient transportation system.
We also want to ensure that all of our stakeholders have an opportunity to read the plan and weigh in. And that means you.
For the next few weeks, you can review the plan and submit your ideas and comments at the DOT Strategic Plan Online Dialogue. The dialogue also provides an opportunity to read and respond to what others are saying about the plan. Your participation will help us shape the future of transportation in America.
I appreciate any time you can offer to provide this important feedback, and I encourage you to give the Online Dialogue site a visit. If you prefer, you can also email your comments directly to USDOTStrategicPlan@dot.gov.
