The SEC has issued its draft Strategic Plan for fiscal years 2014−2018. The SEC’s draft plan outlines its mission, vision, values, strategic goals and objectives, and financial resources. In particular, the draft plan defines and specifies how the SEC plans to meet four strategic goals that include:

    1. Establishing and maintaining an effective regulatory environment.
    2. Fostering and enforcing compliance with federal securities laws.
    3. Facilitating access to information that investors need to make informed investment decisions.
    4. Enhancing the SEC’s performance through effective alignment and management of human, information, and financial capital.

In addition, the draft plan describes “the most significant environmental factors that have influenced—and are expected to continue to influence—the SEC’s fulfillment of its mission.” These include complex, global securities markets, and how requirements — both regulatory and legislative — may change over time.

The issuance of a Strategic Plan meets the requirements set in the Government Performance and Results Act Modernization Act of 2010.

Comments are requested by March 10, 2014.
