Goals and Results

The table below presents, by DOL Agency, each performance goal for which results are being reported in this document. It includes the goal statement, whether it was achieved, and the period covered. As discussed in the Executive Summary, many of our programs are forward-funded and report on a program year (PY) that begins nine months after the fiscal year. In addition, two OSHA goals (3.1D and 3.1F) rely on performance data that are only available on a calendar year (CY) basis.
