Government Performance and Results Act Annual Report to the President and Congress, Fiscal Year 2006
National Council on Disability
This report compares actual performance with the projected levels of performance set out in the National Council on Disability's (NCD's) annual performance plan. The findings of this report show a positive link between the allocated resources and NCD's performance. NCD's assessment review showed that it was successful in meeting its goals and achieving its intended results. NCD's FY 2006 activities promoted the full participation of people with disabilities in all areas of society by increasing access to assistive and universally designed technologies, expanding educational and employment opportunities, and promoting increased access into daily community life-the core of your New Freedom Initiative. These efforts were based on NCD's strategic goals: (1) Make evidence-based public policy recommendations that can enhance the lives of people with disabilities of all ages and backgrounds; (2) Educate the public and elected officials on disability issues; (3) Promote effective delivery of federal services and programs to all people with disabilities, particularly unserved and underserved populations, such as people from diverse cultures, rural residents, and youth; and (4) Maintain NCD's status as a high performance organization. Through its efforts, NCD had a significant impact on the lives of people with disabilities and their families all over the world. Today, there are more than 50 million Americans with disabilities, 20 percent of the U.S. population. About half of these individuals have a severe disability, affecting their ability to see, hear, walk, or perform other basic functions of life. In conclusion, NCD continues to be a leader in the development and analysis of disability policy. The use of the "Annual Performance Report to the President and Congress, Fiscal Year 2006," as required by the Government Performance and Results Act, has greatly assisted NCD in carrying out its mission. The findings of this report clearly indicate that NCD has either met or exceeded the projected levels in its performance plan. [For the Fiscal Year 2005 report, see ED496297.]
