FSIS Strategic Plan 2017-2021 | Annual Plan FY 2019   

On November 2, 2016, FSIS released the 2017-2021 Strategic Plan. This plan will allow us to continue to modernize and be more effective in meeting our public health mission. The New Strategic Plan includes the following three goals:

  • Prevent Foodborne Illness and Protect Public Health; 
  • Modernize Inspection Systems, Policies, and the Use of Scientific Approaches; 
  • Achieve Operational Excellence. 

Every FSIS employee has an impact on food safety and on the successes of FSIS, and what you do is fundamental to the Agency’s ability to accomplish its mission.

FSIS has also released a 5-year report of key accomplishments under the previous (FY 2011-2016) strategic plan.

Help OPHS Identify Emerging Food Safety Issues

Do you have information on any emerging chemical, microbial or physical hazards that may have an impact on our food supply? If so, “HIT” wants to hear from you! The Hazard Identification Team (HIT) proactively addresses emerging food safety issues and protects public health by prioritizing, tracking and addressing emerging issues. We have already received information from across the Agency on a number of emerging food safety issues, several of which are being investigated by dedicated task forces. Learn more about the issues your colleagues have submitted or submit your own emerging food safety issue on the HIT SharePoint site (available on FSIS Network). More information can also be obtained from the HIT coordinators, Nate Bauer, Kis Robertson, and Lindsay Ward, at HazardIdentificationTeam@fsis.usda.gov.
