websites provide valuable information regarding how the FWS ABC
initiative fits into the larger picture of both the President’s
Management Agenda and the DOI Strategic Plan. These sites are here
to help you further your understanding of ABC, the reasons behind
the implementation, and how it will affect FWS.
Plan: The Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) seeks
to make the federal government more accountable to the American
people for the tax dollars it spends and the results it achieves.
The Department of the Interior is complying with GPRA by developing
a performance management system that provides useful information
to managers and promotes accountability for results. GPRA has three
main components, strategic plans, annual performance plans, and
annual performance reports.
Management Agenda: The President's Management Agenda is an aggressive
strategy for improving the management of the Federal government,
focusing upon five areas of management weakness across the government.
