NTSB requests industry feedback on strategic plan

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is requesting industry feedback on its draft strategic plan for fiscal years 2018-2022, which is now available online for the public to review.


The NTSB draft strategic plan summarizes its analysis of the internal and external environment impacting the organization; evaluates NTSB programs and risks; and provides goals and objectives for the next five years.

The final strategic plan is estimated to be submitted to Congress in December 2017.

The newly revised draft, required to be updated every four years, reflects the priorities of the NTSB and addresses three strategic goals: safety leadership, engagement and synergy.

The first of these goals sees the NTSB aiming to continue to serve as a global leader in independent accident investigations, products, and services essential to transportation safety.


The next goal will see the NTSB seeking to engage external stakeholders to advance transportation safety; and in terms of synergy, it said it will promote agency teamwork, innovation, and engagement to optimize operations.

Comments on the NTSB’s proposals can be submitted here, and they must be received on or before Nov. 30, 2017.
