This Act was designed to improve program management throughout the Federal government and became effective in 1993. Under this Act, agencies are required to develop a five-year strategic plan outlining its mission, long-term goals for the agency's major functions, performance measures, and reporting results. Strategic plans are to be updated every 3 years and DOL's most current strategic plan can be found on the Strategic Plan webpage. In addition to the strategic plan, agencies also submit an annual performance report to the Office of Management and Budget with established fiscal year performance goals, objectives on how to achieve these goals, and an explanation of how performance is measured and verified.
Beginning 2005, DOL added a performance overview which displays ETA's final GPRA performance goals and targets. Performance results are located on the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) Reports page.
