SBA, DOT make e-gov gains

Agencies earn top marks on PMA scorecard

The Small Business Administration and the Transportation Department both made dramatic improvements this quarter in the e-government portion of the President’s Management Agenda scorecard.

SBA and DOT jumped from “red,” or failing,” to “green,” or meeting expectations, in e-government, one of five management areas the Office of Management and Budget measures in the quarterly scorecards.

The Environmental Protection Agency and the State Department also saw their scores improve to green as well.

The quarterly scorecards track agency compliance with PMA initiatives. Besides e-government, the other areas are human capital, competitive sourcing, financial performance, and budget performance and integration.

To receive a green score, agencies must meet a series of milestones each quarter. A yellow score indicates that an agency met some of the milestones, while a red score means an agency has encountered serious problems in implementing the initiatives.

By achieving the green score for e-government, State joined the Labor Department as the only agencies that received the highest scores across all the PMA categories.

The departments of Education and Housing and Urban Development, along with the National Science Foundation, also received green scores for e-government.

The Interior and Justice departments saw their scores improve to yellow, giving them the same score as the Commerce, Energy, and Treasury departments, the Agency for International Development, the General Services Administration, OMB, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Social Security Administration.

Three agencies—the departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services and NASA—slipped in their e-government scores from yellow to red, joining the departments of Defense, Homeland Security, Veterans Affairs, the Office of Personnel Management, and the Army Corps of Engineers.

No agency received red marks in the human capital category, while 16 agencies saw red in the financial performance category.
