The federal government faces significant financial, management, and performance challenges as it tries to effectively implement programs and deliver services. Congress and the Executive Branch developed a framework that provides important tools to help address these challenges. This framework aims to focus federal efforts on long-term results.
The framework includes:
Setting annual and long-term goals
Measuring progress towards these goals
Determining if these goals are being met, and what actions to take if not
Transparently reporting results
