  The FDIC’s board of directors, as required by the Government Performance and Results Act, released its FDIC Strategic Plan, 2008–2013. The latest release supersedes the FDIC Strategic Plan, 2005–2010, which was approved in 2005.

The plan includes the FDIC’s longterm strategic goals and objectives for carrying out its core mission to insure depositors, supervise insured institutions, and resolve the failure of insured institutions. The corporation’s major strategic goals are:

  • Protecting insured depositors from loss without recourse to taxpayer financing.
  • Keeping FDIC-insured institutions safe and sound.
  • Ensuring that consumer rights are protected and that FDIC-supervised institutions invest in their communities.
  • Ensuring that resolutions are orderly and receiverships are managed effectively.
