Corporate Authors:Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (U.S.)
Description:As the leader of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), I am pleased to present the fiscal year (FY) 2007 Congressional Justification. CDC’s budget request reflects a blend of preparedness and prevention activities necessary to protect the health and well-being of the nation’s people.
This budget request also supports CDC’s newly refocused health protection goals:
People –achieve optimal health during every life stage
Places – create and maintain healthy environments
Preparedness – protect people in all communities from infectious, environmental, occupational, and terrorist threats
Global Health – ensure health promotion, health protection, and health diplomacy
CDC has identified six strategic imperatives to support the effective implementation of its goals:
• Health Impact Focus. Align CDC’s people, strategies, goals, investments, and performance to maximize our impact on people’s health and safety.
• Customer-Centricity. Market what people want and need to choose health.
• Public Health Research. Create and disseminate the knowledge and innovations that people need to protect their health now and in the future.
• Leadership. Leverage CDC’s unique capabilities, partnerships, and networks to improve the health system.
• Global Health Impact. Extend CDC’s knowledge and tools to promote health protection around the world.
• Accountability. Sustain people’s trust and confidence by making the most efficient and effective use of their investments in CDC.
In alignment with the President’s and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary’s priorities and guidance as well as CDC’s goals and strategic imperatives, CDC’s budget request supports the HHS FY 2005-2010 Strategic Plan and reflects the use of the PART process as a critical tool to evaluate program effectiveness.
Comprehensive performance measurement and reporting at CDC in 15 major areas provide results-oriented information that tracks CDC’s progress toward achieving its health protection goals. This justification includes the FY 2007 Annual Performance Plan and FY 2005 Annual Performance Report as required by the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA). It directly links the budget discussion with program performance metrics. Additionally, we are proud to report increased efficiencies and effectiveness in administrative areas and information technology, which allow us to dedicate more resources to front-line public health.
CDC continues to link agency-wide goals with program priorities and resources, utilizing the expertise of our internal experts and the expertise of our partners to develop consistent and effective ways to measure our achievements in health impact. This FY 2007 budget request highlights our accomplishments, conveys our vision, and reflects a strategic approach to FY 2007 that protects and enhances the public’s health.
