FDIC Seeks Comments on Draft 2001-2006 Strategic Plan
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is seeking comments from FDIC-supervised institutions on its draft strategic plan covering the six-year period 2001 through 2006. Comments are due by July 31, 2001.
The FDIC is revising its Strategic Plan to better reflect the FDIC's three major program areas - Insurance, Supervision, and Receivership Management - as well as to articulate more results-oriented goals. We believe that the institutions we insure are interested in our goals and the strategies that we will use to accomplish them.
The draft 2001-2006 Strategic Plan also includes a new section called "Perspective and Outlook." This section will highlight issues that may impact the banking industry and the FDIC over the next two to five years.
The FDIC's mission is to contribute to stability and public confidence in the nation's financial system by insuring deposits, examining and supervising financial institutions, and managing receiverships. The draft strategic plan for 2001 through 2006 provides a framework for implementing this mission by pursuing four desired results:
Protection of insured depositors from loss, without recourse to taxpayer funding;
Safety and soundness of insured depository institutions;
Protection of consumers' rights and the investment by FDIC-supervised institutions in their communities; and
Recovery to creditors of receiverships.
