DOL Annual Report, Fiscal Year 2005
Performance and Accountability Report

Performance Goal Details

Due to the early reporting date (just six weeks after the end of the fiscal year) and the wide variety of sources from which the Department receives performance data – including states, contractors, and domestic and international grant recipients – not all of the data required to report performance results are available, so the Department estimates performance results for some of its goals.

Where estimates have been used in this report, they are clearly identified as such. These estimates are based on methodologies developed by the programs and reviewed by the Department of Labor’s Office of Inspector General.  Most of these performance estimates use partial year data and then extrapolate for the entire fiscal year.  In instances where final quarter data have not traditionally been representative of the entire fiscal year, other estimating methodologies were used.

New indicators often lack data needed to establish targets.  For such indicators, the first year’s target may be to establish a baseline (abbreviated as “base” in this table); success is determined by gathering the data as planned.

Performance Goal 04-1.1A (ETA)
Increase the employment, retention, and earnings of individuals registered under the WIA Adult program.
