Program Planning and Integration (PPI) brings all of NOAA's talent, resources, and capabilities together to meet the needs of national and regional stakeholders in a unified manner. PPI coordinates NOAA's many lines of service with the nation's many needs for environmental information and stewardship. It ensures that agency investments and actions are guided by a strategic plan, are based on sound social and economic analysis, adhere to executive and legislative science, technology and environmental policy, and integrate the full breadth of NOAA's resources, knowledge and talent to meet its mission goals. PPI provides four distinct services to NOAA:


PPI is responsible for managing the strategic and annual planning cycles. PPI represents NOAA in select inter and intra-agency policy functions. PPI provides the framework for the structure and performance of NOAA programs. PPI leads NOAA’s annual performance review, both at the program and the corporate level.
