Plans & Reports

ARS is publicly accountable for our fiscal and research-program plans, practices and other responsibilities. ARS and other federal agencies develop strategic plans and annual performance plans and reports, as required by the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA) and the GPRA Modernization Act of 2010 (GPRAMA).

The 2018-2020 ARS Strategic Plan details our mission and sets out our broad goals and objectives along with measurable performance goals.

The ARS 2020 Annual Report on Science highlights ARS’s impact on the food we eat, the water we drink, and the air we breathe.

 ARS' previous Strategic Plan and Annual Performance Reports and Performance plans for the previous 5 years are accessible in our GPRA archive.

In addition to reports required by GPRA, we annually document the progress in each of our research projects and National Programs. Links to these reports are in the National Programs section of our web site.
