Summary
This document discusses the Department of Energy's (DOE) annual performance plan for fiscal year 2000 which is required by the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993. It summarizes our preliminary observations on the annual plan in three key areas and is based on our ongoing evaluation of the annual plan. In summary, DOE'S annual performance plan for fiscal year 2000 is linked to the Department's strategic plan and to the program activities in the Department's budget request. The annual plan also recognizes the importance of verifying and validating the Department's performance. However, the annual plan could be more useful if it better identified planned outcomes, presented information on individual offices' planned performance and requested funds to meet the needs of congressional decision makers during their review of the budget request, and described its verification and validation procedures in more detail. Under the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993, an annual performance plan is to systematically provide congressional decision makers with information on the results to be achieved with a proposed level of resources. Specifically, the annual plan should be clean related to the agency's strategic plan, and its performance goals and measures should be outcome oriented wherever possible. In addition, the plan should link the agency's performance goals and measures with the program activities in the President's budget request for the agency. Finally, the plan should specify the procedures that will be used to verify and validate information on the agency's performance
