Program Performance for the
FY 2004 Budget
has taken unprecedented steps to reform the budget process by establishing
a systematic, consistent process for developing program performance ratings
and then using that information to make budget decisions. To enhance the
practical use of performance information, OMB, in collaboration with other
Federal agencies, has developed the Program Assessment Rating Tool (PART),
comprised of assessment criteria on program performance and management.
The PART establishes a high, "good government" standard of performance
and will be used to rate programs in an open, public fashion. Ratings
for 20 percent of programs will be published in the FY 2004 Budget, and
the basis for the rating made available to the public.
