What Is a Performance and Accountability Report?
The Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA) requires federal agencies to develop annual performance reports based on their strategic plans and annual performance budgets. The Government Management Reform Act of 1994 requires federal agencies to develop accountability reports of their financial information. As a result of the Reports Consolidation Act of 2000, the Office of Management and Budget requires that a number of federal agencies, including the Department of Education, combine these reports. This combined report is the annual performance and accountability report.
The Department of Education won a second consecutive Certificate of Excellence in Accountability Reporting for our Fiscal Year 2004 Performance and Accountability Report. In our tradition of quality reporting, we proudly present this Fiscal Year 2005 Performance and Accountability Report.
