Delivering A High-Performance Government

The Performance Improvement Council advances mission achievement across the Federal Government by helping agencies set, plan, and achieve federal priority goals and facilitating government-wide implementation of performance management best practices through capacity-building and knowledge-sharing.

Our Mission

With the Government Performance and Results Modernization Act of 2010 (GPRAMA), Congress established the Performance Improvement Council (PIC) to assist the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to improve the performance of the Federal Government and achieve the Federal Government priority goals. Under the direction of OMB, the PIC:

  • Works to resolve specific government-wide or crosscutting performance issues
  • Facilitates the exchange among agencies of practices that have led to performance improvements within specific programs, agencies, or across agencies
  • Coordinates with other interagency management councils
  • Gathers assistance, information, and advice from federal agencies, including smaller, nonmember agencies
  • Provides insight into the performance improvement experiences of corporations, nonprofit organizations, foreign, State, and local governments, Government employees, public sector unions, and customers of Government services
  • Develops recommendations to streamline and improve performance management policies and requirements

Our Objectives

Optimize cross-council coordination and service delivery

Synchronize efforts across councils for a more holistic approach to federal management with the recognition that issues and solutions do not exist in management silos

Deliver useful resources to stakeholders

Serve stakeholders by identifying their needs and offering them support through facilitations, trainings, and tools. The PIC will also focus on making digital and in-person resources more available, interactive, and accessible

Unite the performance community

Inspire collaboration, relationship-building, and knowledge-sharing by offering opportunities, such as workshops and listservs, for our stakeholders to build a strong network

Improve federal performance reporting

The PIC will continue to develop a long-term, sustainable, and technologically modern to better serve stakeholders for years to come. In February 2018, we will launch an interim site to meet the mandate to provide stakeholders with access to federal performance information.

Enhance performance and mission achievement

The PIC will focus on using performance management practices to help shape agencies progress towards mission achievement, including elevating the performance improvement officer’s role in enterprise-level decision making.
