In response to a congressional request, GAO provided information concerning five federal agencies' expenditures under the Performance Management and Recognition System (PMRS).

GAO found that: (1) one of the agencies spent more in fiscal year (FY) 1986 than in FY 1985 for PMRS performance awards; (2) one agency estimated that it would spend less on the awards in FY 1986 than in FY 1985; and (3) three agencies estimated that they would spend more on the awards in FY 1986 than in FY 1985.
