Improving our Performance

Today on Capitol Hill, OMB Deputy Director for Management Jeff Zients testified in front of the Senate Budget Committee about the Administration’s efforts to improve the performance of the federal government so that it is more efficient and effective.
As Jeff said in his testimony, "Overall, too much emphasis has been placed on producing performance information to comply with a checklist of requirements instead of using it to drive change. This must change. Federal managers and employees at all levels must use performance goals and measures to set priorities, monitor progress, and diagnose problems. They must learn from practices that work and those that do not. They need to learn how to use goals and measures to motivate the best from our workforce and our service delivery partners to achieve greater results and to allocate scarce resources wisely."
