NWS Strategic Plan
The NWS Strategic Plan for 2005-2010 lays out the path we will take to accomplish our mission, advance our vision, and integrate our core values throughout NWS.
The theme of this plan, "Working Together to Save Lives," reflects our commitment to work with all of our partners
to provide the services America needs. The plan conforms to the substance and structure of
NOAA's Strategic Plan. In writing the plan, we considered all the input stakeholders provided at NOAA-sponsored meetings
and comments received on the public draft version.
