Enacted in 1993, GPRA was designed to improve program management throughout the Federal government. Agencies are required to develop a five-year strategic plan outlining its mission, long-term goals for the agency's major functions, performance measures, and reporting results. The strategic plan is updated every 3 years; DOL's current strategic plan can be found on the Strategic Plan webpage.
In addition to the strategic plan, agencies submit an annual performance report to the Office of Management and Budget with established fiscal year performance goals, objectives on how to achieve these goals, and an explanation of how performance is measured and verified.
