It took a little longer than expected, but performance.gov is now open to the public. The site, created about a year ago by the Obama administration, had hitherto been password-protected and generally limited to federal employees. Check it out and let us know what you think.
The site is intended to undergird the administration’s performance management strategy, in part by providing “in-depth information on agency priority goals and key performance indicators, measures and milestones,” federal Chief Performance Officer Jeffrey Zients wrote last September in a memorandum to Senior Executive Service members. At the time, Zients said the site would go public later in the fall, but that debut had been repeatedly delayed.
