NOT PERFORMING PROGRAMS

WHAT DOES NOT PERFORMING MEAN?

The program rating indicates how well a program is performing, so the public can see how effectively tax dollars are being spent. ExpectMore.gov tells you whether or not a program is performing.

Programs categorized as NOT PERFORMING have ratings of Ineffective or Results Not Demonstrated.

Ineffective. Programs receiving this rating are not using your tax dollars effectively. Ineffective programs have been unable to achieve results due to a lack of clarity regarding the program's purpose or goals, poor management, or some other significant weakness.

Results Not Demonstrated. A rating of Results Not Demonstrated (RND) indicates that a program has not been able to develop acceptable performance goals or collect data to determine whether it is performing.

Based on our most recent assessments, 28% of Federal programs are Not Performing.

More information on how we assess and rate programs is available here. Funding information for each program can be found with the President's Budget.
