The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is seeking commentary on its proposed Fiscal Year 2012-2016 Strategic Plan.

The draft plan envisions three strategic goals: 1) "to combat employment discrimination through strategic law enforcement"; 2) "to prevent employment discrimination through education and outreach" and by establishing community partnerships; and 3) "to ensure that the EEOC delivers excellent service through effective systems, updated technology, and a skilled and diverse workforce."

Comments made must be submitted by 5 p.m. ET on Feb. 1, 2012, at or by mail to Office of the Chair, U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, 131 M Street, NE, Washington, DC 20507. This draft plan has not been approved by the commission and is still under review.

Congress requires the publishing of new strategic plans by federal government agencies every four years. The current EEOC strategic plan was enunciated in July 2008 and holds sway through the end of 2012.
