Every few years most agencies revise the agency’s strategic plan. The National Science Foundation (NSF) is preparing for the next revision of its strategic plan, which will take place in the 2017-2018 timeframe. The feedback mechanism is relatively informal, and comments are requested by September 27.
The strategic plan is a high-level document, and the next one will cover 2018-2022. The plan includes Strategic Goals (along with the Objectives for achieving each goal), Core Values and overall Vision for the agency. There are other items in the plan, but it is for these four elements that the NSF seeks feedback.
If you’re looking for a place to start, I’d recommend the NSF Vision:
This FYI post from the American Institute of Physics has more details on how and when the NSF (with the National Science Board) will develop the new plan. There will be additional opportunities for agency staff, Congress, and traditional stakeholders to provide input. However, this appears to be the one time that the public has an opportunity to weigh in. Make it count.
