Strategy 5: Office of Evaluation

Establish an independent office of evaluation to assess enterprise performance

Other Information:

Goal leaders and enterprise executives must be able to rigorously evaluate their portfolios of programs, determining which ones are working and which are not. However, two decades after the advent of GPRA, the federal government is struggling to measure program performance. Government programs and government officials tend to focus on the budget or the numbers of people served, but they are much less likely to try to link those measures to real-world outcomes.
