ODS Invites Public Comment on Strategic Plan Draft

The Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) at the National Institutes of Health has initiated a strategic planning process that will culminate in the ODS Strategic Plan for 2016-2021. To assist with this process, ODS requests input from research communities---- academic, government, and industry---- and from other interested parties. The overall purpose of the strategic planning effort is to identify both new opportunities and emerging needs for incorporation in the programmatic efforts of the office. At this time, ODS desires comment on the Draft Strategic Plan (https://ods.od.nih.gov/About/StrategicPlan.aspx) regarding these important issues:

  • Are the current strategic goals adequate?
  • Is ODS meeting its stakeholders' needs?
  • In the future, should some of ODS's current programs or activities be given higher (or lower) priority?
  • How can ODS more effectively provide useful information to the ODS user community, including consumers, investigators, practitioners, industry, media, policy makers, government, and other interested parties?

How to submit comments:

Interested individuals and organizations should submit their responses to ODSplan@od.nih.gov.

In order to ensure full consideration, all responses must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. Eastern time, September 30, 2016.
