NOAA Vision & Mission • NOAA’s Vision: • To move NOAA into the 21st Century scientifically and operationally, in the same interrelated manner as the environment that we observe and forecast, while recognizing the link between our global economy and our planet’s ecology • NOAA’s Mission: • To understand and predict changes in the Earth’s environment and conserve and manage coastal and marine resources to meet the Nation’s economic, social and environmental needs

  3. NOAA’s Mission Goals • Protect, restore, and manage the use of coastal and ocean resources through ecosystem management • Understand climate variability and change to enhance society’s ability to plan and respond • Serve society’s needs for weather and water information • Support the Nation’s commerce with information for safe, efficient, and environmentally sound transportation

  4. NOAA Management Practices • Introduce practices to improve NOAA’s products and services • Build a culture of execution • Strategy, people, and operations • Leadership, communications, and management information • Implement NOAA Business Model

  14. Ocean Commission Report • Critical Action Items • Establish a National Ocean Council in the Executive Office of the President chaired by an assistant to the President • Create a non-federal Presidential Council of Advisors on Ocean Policy • Strengthen NOAA and improve federal agency structure • Develop a flexible, voluntary process for creating regional ocean councils, facilitated and supported by the National Ocean Council • Double U.S. investment in ocean research • Implement the national Integrated Ocean Observing System(the report noted the importance of our work in GEO and stated support for a successful conclusion to our efforts) • Increase attention to ocean education

  15. Ocean Commission Report • Critical Action Items (continued): • Strengthen the link between coastal and watershed management • Create measurable water pollution reduction goals, particularly for nonpoint sources, and strengthen incentives, technical assistance and other management tools to reach those goals • Reform fisheries management by separating scientific assessment and allocation, improving the Regional Fishery Management Council system, and exploring the use of dedicated access privileges • Accede to the United Nations Convention on the law of the sea • Establish an Ocean Policy Trust Fund based on revenue from offshore energy activity and other new and emerging offshore uses to pay for implementing the recommendations

  16. NOAA Research Review • Recommendations • Develop a Research Strategy, extending 20 years, supporting the strategic plan • Clearly delineate Research’s role in the Research Vision and Plan • Establish an Associate Administrator for Research reporting to the NOAA Administrator • Assign senior manager in each line office for the research program reporting directly to the Assistant Administrator • Determine where research programs are located within NOAA while strengthening OAR • Develop clear guidelines for the management of reimbursable funding • Consolidate the five OAR laboratories in Boulder into a single Center
