CFPB Releases Five Year Strategic Plan


On September 25, the CFPB released a draft strategic plan for 2013-2018. The draft plan outlines the CFPB’s four strategic goals and desired outcomes, as well as its broad strategies for achieving those objectives. The CFPB states that it will strive to (i) “prevent financial harm to consumers while promoting good practices that benefit them,” (ii) “empower consumers to live better financial lives,” (iii) inform the public and policymaking with “data-driven analysis,” and (iv) advance the CFPB’s performance “by maximizing resource productivity and enhancing impact.” For each goal, the plan identifies metrics the CFPB will use to measure its performance. For example, to assess its progress in preventing financial harm to consumers and promoting good practices, the CFPB will consider, among other indicators, the number of fair lending supervision activities opened during the fiscal year and the percentage of fair lending cases filed that were “successfully resolved” through litigation, settlement, or default judgment. The CFPB has asked for comments by October 25, 2012.
