Strategic Planning

 

USPTO Strategic Plan

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) Strategic Plan for fiscal years (FY) 2014-2018 sets forth the agency's three mission-focused strategic goals and one management goal, as well as the proposed objectives and initiatives to meet those goals. The plan is designed to continue strengthening the capacity of the USPTO, improve the quality of issued patents and registered trademarks, and shorten the time it takes to get a patent. Consistent with the Department of Commerce's strategic plan's emphasis on innovation as a foundation for economic growth and opportunity, this plan will continue to enhance and accelerate the innovation and job growth needed to transform the U.S. economy, foster competitiveness, and drive the creation and growth of U.S. businesses. This plan has been completed with input from our public advisory committees, stakeholders, the public, and USPTO employees.
