FY 2004 Annual Performance Plan

Appendix B, C, D

Appendix B.  President's Management Agenda: Common Measures for Federal Job Training and Employment Programs

Background

The President's Management Agenda, announced in the summer of 2001, is an aggressive strategy for improving the management of the Federal government. It focuses on five areas of management weakness across the government where improvements and the most progress can be made.

One of five areas to be addressed under the President's Management Agenda is the integration of performance and budget through which the Administration plans to formally integrate performance review with budget decisions. The first evidence of this formal integration was in the context of the FY 2003 budget, in which several government programs were rated as to effectiveness. This will continue with the FY 2004 budget as a result of discrete program assessments being conducted by the Office of Management and Budget and the Agencies of government. A component of this process includes comparison based upon the goals and related performance for the GPRA goals set forth in the Department's Annual Performance Plans.

Common Measures

A key component in the integration of performance and budget is the creation of common metrics to evaluate the effectiveness of similar programs. Under a federal common measures initiative, the Department of Labor is implementing a set of common measures that will apply to about twenty-nine federal job training and employment programs including those administered by the Department's of Education, Housing and Urban Development, Health and Human Services, Veterans Affairs and Interior. Fifteen of the programs are administered by DOL. The purpose of this initiative is to develop common performance measures for adult programs that address the goals of getting a job, keeping a job and improving earnings for participants in all affected programs as well as the related costs. A separate set of measures for entry into employment and education, attainment of a degree or certificate, literacy and numeracy gains and cost are proposed for youth employment and education programs. 

The Department's initial steps to implement the measures include using the measures to propose indicators in the FY 2004 budget and using the measures in the development of its strategic plan.

In many cases, the common measures are similar to the existing performance measures for several job training and employment programs currently administered by the Department. However, it is important to note that no common measure is calculated exactly like any current performance measure.

DOL's future plans to further address this initiative

In FY 2004 the Department has begun the process of implementing common measures and reporting requirements, consistent with existing statutory authority.  On December 10, 2003, the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) issued policy guidance regarding the common performance measures.  ETA is in the process of developing and implementing a single comprehensive system to collect, record, and report program performance for workforce programs that will include a new individual record for participants, a new consolidated report of workforce activities, financial reports that relate costs to activities, common performance measures, data validation, and information on services provided to employers through the One-Stop system.

The adult common measures of entered employment, earnings and retention will be used for adult programs administered by DOL, including the WIA Dislocated Worker program and the labor exchange activity. The youth common measures programs will be used by youth programs administered by DOL, including Job Corps and WIA youth. To the extent that there statutory indicators or measures that do not fall within the meaning of the common measures they will be used until revised by statute. The revised definitions and reporting instructions will require approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act. The Department may also seek revisions to performance measures under the various statutory authorities subject to reauthorization.
