"The mission of the Department is to create the conditions for economic growth and opportunity. As part of the Obama administration’s economic team, the Secretary of Commerce serves as the voice of U.S. business within the President’s Cabinet. The Strategic Plan is how the Department maintains its focus on achieving its Open for Business Agenda."

My personal favorites on the list are the Census Bureau, the USPTO, and NOAA.
So give the new site a try, and let your Department of Commerce know what you think!
