Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce that the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) is seeking public comment on the draft strategic plan for the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI).  The draft plan, which has been developed through collaboration with partners and stakeholders in the geospatial community, describes a broad national vision for the NSDI and includes goals and objectives for the Federal government's role in continued sustainable development of the NSDI.
I encourage you to review the plan and offer any comments for improvement.  The strategic plan, along with instructions for providing comments, is posted at the following address:  www.fgdc.gov/nsdi-plan<http://www.fgdc.gov/nsdi-plan>.  Comments may be submitted electronically to: [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.  Comments are due by August 21, 2013.

The new NSDI plan is important and timely for several reasons.  First, while the FGDC community has engaged in a series of strategic initiatives over the past several years, including the Geospatial Line of Business and Geospatial Platform initiatives, the current NSDI strategic plan has not been revised for a number of years.  Second, geospatial technologies, industries, and applications have seen tremendous growth and change over the past several years, and our strategies need to be modernized to align with and leverage these changes.  In addition, the recent report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO), "OMB and Agencies Need to Make Coordination a Priority to Reduce Duplication" (GAO-13-94), reaffirmed the importance of improving coordination and reducing potential duplication and recommended the development of an updated NSDI strategy.

As we have developed the plan, we have provided multiple opportunities for participation and input. These opportunities have included forums for leaders of key geospatial organizations, workshops for Federal leaders, sessions at geospatial professional conferences, and public meetings of the FGDC Coordination Group, the FGDC Steering Committee, and the National Geospatial Advisory Committee (NGAC). Our goal has been to engage leaders of key geospatial organizations in the early stages of the planning process, gather initial input, and seek continuing involvement. The input and suggestions we received from our partners, both within and outside of the Federal government, has been instrumental in shaping the new plan.  The NGAC, in particular, has provided extensive and thoughtful input into the plan.

Following the public comment period, a revised draft of the plan will be prepared for final review and adoption by the FGDC Steering Committee.  Following completion of the strategic plan, the FGDC community will develop more detailed project plans for the goals and objectives in the strategic plan.

We appreciate your long-standing involvement and support for the NSDI, and we look forward to working with you and your organizations as we finalize and implement the new NSDI strategic plan.  Additional information about the NSDI planning process is posted at: www.fgdc.gov/nsdi-plan<http://www.fgdc.gov/nsdi-plan>.  We will post additional information on the webpage as the planning process advances.

Please contact Ivan DeLoatch ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>, 703-648-5752) or John Mahoney ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>, 206-220-4621) if you have any questions about the plan.
