A new Strategic Plan for 2017-2021 was unveiled by The Interagency Food Safety Analytics Collaboration (IFSAC) - a partnership that consists of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
Building on previous accomplishments, this new Strategic Plan outlines goals and objectives for the next five years (2017-2021) that will guide IFSAC activities. IFSAC’s primary focus is to continue to improve estimates of foodborne illness source attribution, and to develop methods to estimate how sources change over time. The three goals that underpin the overarching focus are: improving the use and quality of new and existing data sources; improving analytic methods and models; and enhancing the use of and communication about IFSAC analytic products
