Performance assessments

A report released by the General Accounting Office examines various methodologies that agencies use in performance reports and budgets requests to show how they are achieving long-term agency or governmentwide goals.

The report, "Program Evaluation: Strategies for Assessing How Information Dissemination Contributes to Agency Goals," recommended that agencies develop models that better detail the logical trail from program activities to desired outcomes, thereby helping "program and evaluation planners to articulate the specific behavior changes and long-term outcomes they expect."
