OMB asks agencies for 2008, 2009 goals

Agencies will offer the Office of Management and Budget by June 28 their final sets of goals for meeting the President’s Management Agenda in fiscal 2008 and 2009.

Clay Johnson, OMB’s deputy director for management, asked in a memo May 31 agencies’ deputy secretaries to develop and submit two last sets of “Proud to Be” goals for the next two years. The 2008 goals will need to be more specific, detailing what standards for success by which the agency hopes to measure their performance. For 2009 OMB is looking for a brief explanation of the agency’s goals.

OMB expects to finalize the 2008 goals by July 31, the memo states.

This is the first time OMB has asked for two-year goals, however.

OMB upped the ante for achieving green and yellow scores and staying green.
