Source: FSA Activity-Based Cost Model will be used to collect data.

Frequency: Annually.

Next Data Available: December 2005

Data Validated By: On-Site Monitoring By ED.
 
Explanation: FSA has completed defining and validating the ABC methodology that it will use. In addition, reporting has been redesigned to address GAO concerns as well as the current needs of FSA. However, additional work is required from FSA subject matter specialists to allocate baseline resource data prior to using the ABC information. This effort will continue in FY 2005 and will be accomplished by the end of the calendar year. We will develop baseline unit costs for the business processes referenced. The FY 2004 target is to establish a baseline. The FY 2005 target is to maintain the level of the baseline.
