The public can now get an online look at how agencies are progressing toward their priority performance goals under upgrades to a central website unveiled Friday by the Office of Management and Budget.
The changes to http://www.performance.gov/">Performance.gov provide a “progress update” on agency actions to pursue those goals, as well as an outline of the steps ahead.
The updated site “strengthens the government’s performance management with greater transparency, accountability and shared responsibility,” Shelley Metzenbaum, associate director for performance and personnel management at OMB, wrote in an official blog post.
The upgrades come 16 months after Performance.gov was publicly debuted and are also intended to help meet the requirements of last year’s Government Performance and Results Modernization Act.
Among the act’s lead sponsors was Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., who heads a Senate Budget Committee task force on government performance. “We can always do better,” Warner said in a Friday news release, “and this new performance framework will help us make data-driven decisions about what works and what doesn’t.”
