A new study on fixing PART


Accenture, OMB Watch and the Georgetown Public Policy Institute have a new report out (.pdf) on improving the government’s performance management system.

If you’ve been following the Obama/performance management discussion for a while, you’ve probably heard many of the recommendations before: modify PART to focus on outcomes rather than numerical outputs; encourage federal managers to use the results; give Congress more input into the process.

But it’s nice to see those ideas compiled into one report — particularly now that OMB has a chief performance officer who might act on them.
