SBA Strategic Plan Fiscal Years 2014-2018
Every four years, SBA releases a strategy document for the current and upcoming years. The FY2014-2018 Strategic Plan contains only slight modifications to the FY2011-2016 Strategic Plan. This document chiefly refines the language of existing strategic objectives and strategies while adding two new strategic objectives concerning exports and supply chains, respectively. This Strategic Plan provides a framework that will strengthen, streamline, and simplify SBA’s programs while leveraging partnerships across the government and private sector to maximize the tools small business owners and entrepreneurs need to strengthen our economy, drive American innovation, and increase our global competitiveness. The SBA will have three overarching goals for the next five years: (1) Grow businesses and create jobs; (2) Serve as the voice for small business; and, (3) Build an Agency that meets the needs of today’s and tomorrow’s small businesses. Each goal contains objectives which are directly tied to performance both at the individual level and Agency‐wide.
