2008 Performance Report of the Federal Government2008 Performance Report of the Federal Government
Within the report, each major federal agency summarizes its budget, financial, and performance results in two pages. While the Federal government is usually not comfortable with this sort of brevity, the goal is to make performance information more accessible to Congress and the public. This report is an important step toward that goal. Historically, agencies have produced 300-400 page plans and reports each year with hundreds of detailed performance measures that have limited readership.
2008 Performance Data
Performance data actuals for 2008 for all performance data have been posted with each program assessment.

Changes to ExpectMore.gov navigation
Last year to make navigation around ExpectMore.gov smoother, we moved the detailed assessments link, "View Assessment Details," to the top of the program summary page to the left of the assessment title. This will make it clearer to find the detailed PART answers, questions and evidence for each assessment. We also enhanced our metadata for easier searches of the vast program performance data available on ExpectMore.gov. Over 1000 programs of the federal government representing over $2.6 trillion of government spending have been assessed.
