  • The Department’s previous strategic plan was published in September 2006 and covered Fiscal Years (FY) 2006 through 2011.

  • After consultation with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and Congress, DOL delayed – by one year – its strategic plan update to allow Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis to assemble her leadership team.

  • DOL’s updated Strategic Plan – covering FY 2010 through 2016 – is to be in place by September 30, 2010.
