Organization of the FY 2000 Annual Performance Plan

The organization of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife's (Service) FY 2000 Annual Performance Plan reflects the Department of the Interior's (DOI) approach to improve and streamline the Annual Performance Plan and better link the Plan with the Budget. The revised Annual Performance Plan presents the Service's goals and measures, and identifies the FY 2000 strategies and resources needed to achieve them, consistent with the Strategic Plan and budget proposal.

By following this presentation framework, DOI will be able to not only meet the requirements of the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) but promote managerial accountability through a direct connection with the Strategic Plan, resources, and outcomes. The Annual Plan links coherently with goals contained in the Strategic Plan. The Annual Plan sets forth in measurable and quantifiable form the levels of performance for each goal in the budget year. The Annual Plan also links to the Service's budget request to Congress for FY 2000. This presentation provides the decision maker a context by which to make informed decisions on the allocation or reallocation of resources to better accomplish the mission of the organization.

The Annual Performance Plan for FY 2000 is divided into three sections:

Section I -- Introduction and Overview states the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service mission and addresses additional GPRA requirements.

Section II -- Goals includes Annual Performance Plan summary and descriptive goal narrative covering FY 1998, FY 1999, and FY 2000.

Section III -- Performance Measures and Verification provides a simple presentation of the Service's methods to verify and validate the measured values of actual performance.
