Designed specifically for senior committee staff and federal personnel, participants will leave with a helpful set of tools for effective public sector management, as well as a stronger ability to judge agency management and resource use.  Questions that will be covered in the program include:

  • What is GPRA about?  Why is it important to both the executive and legislative branches?
  • What is a “performance budget” and how is it built?
  • What is the Performance Assessment Rating Tool (PART), and is it useful in the Congressional oversight and appropriations process?
  • Are opportunities being lost in the current appropriations process?  If so, how might the process be improved?
