U.S. Department of Education FY 1999 Annual Plan. Volume 1: Objective Performance Plans and Data Quality.
Department of Education, Washington, DC.
The Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 called for the U.S. Department of Education to prepare an Annual Performance Plan which links the Department's budget request with its Strategic Plan. To meet that directive, Volume 1 of the Department's Strategic Plan for 1999 is presented here. It includes objective performance plans and shows how the Department's budget request aligns budgetary and other programmatic and management resources so as to help reach Strategic Plan goals and objectives. The Plan includes 4 goals and 22 objectives. The primary goals are: (1) help all students achieve high academic standards; (2) build a solid foundation for learning; (3) ensure access to postsecondary education and lifelong learning; and (4) make the Department a high-performance organization by focusing on results, service quality, and customer satisfaction. To reach these goals some key management reforms are included in the Plan, such as improved customer service, partner flexibility, an up-to-date knowledge base, skill improvement, highly skilled employees, student educational objectives, responsive management, and financial integrity. The volume also details how performance data will be verified and validated and how the Plan will be coordinated with other federal agencies. (RJM)
