In 1993, the 103rd Congress passed the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA). GPRA addressed concerns that many federal programs did not include specific program goals; which meant federal managers did not have data to evaluate the program. GPRA was designed to be an “Act to provide for the establishment of strategic planning and performance measurement in the Federal Government.” Starting in 2000, GPRA requires every federal agency to develop annual performance plans and program performance reports.
