Note: Agencywide totals may differ from the sum of the amounts on the tables for Strategic Goals 1, 2, and 3 because when multiple units participate in an engagement, credit may be reflected under more than one of the Goals. For more information on the data in these tables, please see the section on verfication and validation. For our fiscal year 2001 and 2002 targets, please see the "looking ahead" page.

(a) Because GAO did not have a performance plan for fiscal year 2000, the figures in this column were referred to in past documents as "estimates." They served the same function as the targets we now set in our performance plans.

(b) This measure gauges the implementation rate of recommendations made 4 years prior to each respective fiscal year.

(c) Data were not collected for this measure in fiscal years 1994 and 1995; a 4-year average could not be calculated for actual performance. We do not set 4-year average targets for timeliness.
