The U.S. Department of the Interior (Department or DOI) is hosting a series of government-to-government Tribal and Alaska Native Corporation (ANC) consultation sessions to help inform the development of the Department’s Fiscal Year 2022-2026 Strategic Plan (Strategic Plan). The DOI Strategic Plan will outline the goals and objectives of the Secretary of the Interior, strategies to accomplish those goals, and performance measures to track the progress of the plan. The strategic plan will also identify key risks, establish plans to mitigate risks, and build evidence to help achieve the Department’s goals. Previous strategic plans can be view by visiting DOI Strategic Plans(link is external).
DOI is requesting Tribal and ANC input on the Department’s Strategic Plan framework, which addresses the strategic priorities of the Biden-Harris Administration and Secretary Haaland. The framework is structured around four overarching mission goals for the Department:
· Promote well-being, equity, and justice for Tribes, Native Americans, and Alaska Natives.
· Conserve, protect, and restore natural and cultural resources.
· Sustainably balance the use of resources while supporting communities and the economy.
· Serve and honor the public trust.Tribal leaders can find more details about the schedule and registration information for the October 12th, 14th, and 19th consultations in the October letter to Tribal leaders, and ANC CEOs can find more details about the schedule and registration information for the November 3rd consultation session in the October letter to Alaskan Native Corporation CEOs.
