ANNUAL REPORT FY 2002

Appendix 2
Goals and Results

A Summary by Goal of Program Results and Time Period of Measurement

This Appendix summarizes the performance results described earlier in this report. For each performance goal, the result and corresponding measurement time frame are presented. In most cases, the measurement time frame is FY 2002, but some of the goals presented are measured for other time frames. Some ETA programs, for example, are forward-funded and follow a program year (PY) that begins nine months after the fiscal year for which program funding was received. For these programs, this report addresses Program Year 2001 goals that were included in the FY 2001 Annual Performance Plan with a performance period of July 2001 to June 2002. Some Agency data are generated from external sources and have reporting time lags, other data are given on a calendar year (CY) basis, and some data were not available at the time of publication.

The last table lists FY 2002 goals for which no results are presented in this report.
