Wednesday, February 22, 2006 : How Well is Our Government Performing?

The LibrarianInBlack blog (2/21/2006) brings our attention
to, a web resources created by the White House
Office of Management and Budget about the success and
performance of various federal programs. Programs either rate
as "Performing" (72% of total) or "Not Peforming" (28% of total).
Within each rating category, you can see all the programs with that
rating and also see the details about each assessment.

LibrarianInBlack points out that only 15% of those in the "Performing"
category were rated at the top level, Effective, and 24% of the 28% that
were ranked as "Not Performing" were so labeled because the organization
lacked goals or data.
