Next Data Available: October 2005
Data Validated By: On-Site Monitoring By ED.
Limitations: Data are self-reported by grantees.
Explanation: Performance reporting requirements for the PIRC program are being revised to incorporate the collection of information needed to respond to this indicator. This was a new indicator based on a program priority for 2004. There is insufficient information available to pre-determine a reasonable baseline number for the first year. Consequently, actual data collected for the first year will serve as the baseline and growth based on that number will be used to establish the performance targets for succeeding years. The FY 2004 target is to establish a baseline. The target for FY 2005 is the baseline plus 5%. The target for FY 2006 is the baseline plus 10%. The target for FY 2007 is the baseline plus 15%.
