Budget and Performance Integration


One of five government-wide management initiatives, the Budget and Performance Integration Initiative builds on the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA) and earlier efforts to identify program goals and performance measures, and link them to the budget process. The FY 2003 President's Budget was the first to include explicit assessments of program performance. Since the FY 2003 Budget was released, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has been refining and improving the program assessment process in preparation for the FY 2004 Budget. Special attention has also been given to the development of common performance measures that can be used in the assessment of programs with similar goals. Finally, the OMB Director has appointed a Performance Measurement Advisory Council to provide independent, expert advice and recommendations regarding the use of program performance measures in making management and budget decisions.
