Agencies are improving their compliance with the President's Management Agenda, according to the latest quarterly scorecard.
The Office of Management and Budget's scorecard for the second quarter of fiscal 2008 shows that almost half of the agency status scores were green, the highest possible, on their current status. More than 75 percent of the progress scores were green.
The scorecards use red, yellow and green status indicators, with red indicating significant lapses. They rate agencies on five separate objectives, and each one gets a red, yellow or green score.
The Labor department, Social Security Administration, and Environmental Protection Agency maintained green scores for both status and progress on all five governmentwide initiatives.
The fine initiatives are human capital management, competitive sourcing, financial performance, e-government and performance improvement.
“All this ‘green’ is driven by agency interest in better management practices,” said Clay Johnson, OMB’s deputy director for management. “Federal employees want their agencies to be more effective and efficient, and they continue to welcome the opportunity to demonstrate their ability to perform better and better every year.”
