The U.S. Agency for Global Media’s 2022-2026 strategic plan, “Truth over Disinformation: Supporting Freedom and Democracy,” aims to strengthen the agency’s capacity to support the Administration’s national security interim guidance on promoting “freedom, prosperity, peace, and dignity.”
The USAGM 2022-2026 Strategic Plan, “Truth over Disinformation: Supporting Freedom and Democracy,” is the sixth strategic plan since the agency’s inception in 1998. It is the first plan developed under the full implementation of the governance changes in the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017. The position of a Senate-confirmed CEO now in effect facilitates the establishment of a clear strategic vision and the ability to chart a clear course to achieve it.
To support USAGM’s mission and vision, we have developed two sets of objectives to underscore two key themes — Impact and Agility.
“IMPACT” is the concrete change that happens in the world as a result of our work. It reflects our effectiveness in planning, execution of our mission, and measuring our results. “AGILITY” means being structured, organized, and equipped to do our work in the most efficient, flexible way possible, able to adapt to fast-changing media markets and short-notice global developments, and to hold ourselves accountable for success. Agility begins with our mindset and encompasses our content production, technology, and support services.
The full performance goals, with measurable targets, can be found in the Performance Budget section of the Congressional Budget Justification. In addition, these objectives are carried out through the annual formulation of strategic audiences, goals, tactics, and targets by each USAGM language service — ensuring the connection between the overall strategy and what is implemented on the ground.
