Abstract

This paper examines the performance management practices of the George W. Bush administration, including the President's Management Agenda, the Program Assessment Rating Tool, and efforts to link performance data to the budget process. Such efforts have struggled to succeed. Congress has resisted these initiatives, and Democrats view them as a partisan tool. Instead of relying on performance data from the executive branch, Congress directly asks agencies to measure indicators. This paper is a draft of chapter 7 of The Dynamics of Performance Management: Constructing Information and Reform, published by Georgetown University Press.

Keywords: performance, management, results, budget, Bush, Office of Management and Budget
