Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA)

Part of the Clinton administration's effort to “reinvent government,” the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 was designed to shift the focus of government decision making and accountability away from the activities that are undertaken to the results of those activities, such as real gains in employability, safety, responsiveness, or program quality. Under GPRA, federal departments and agencies are required to develop multiyear strategic plans, annual performance standards, and performance reports.
