Increasing Transparency and Accountability in Federal Performance Reporting: Lessons from the OMB Pilot Program
In 2006, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) authorized the Performance and Accountability Reporting (PAR) Pilot Program, which permitted executive branch agencies to use an alternative approach to reporting financial and performance information. Eleven departments and agencies volunteered to participate in the FY 2007 PAR Pilot Program. Three initiatives were held to assess and share lessons learned from the PAR Pilot Program. A summary of these initiatives as well as recommendations in how federal performance reporting can be improved are included in this concise, 14-page report.
