The Office of Management and Budget is using the new online portal Performance.gov to track quarterly federal agencies’ progress on a number of goals.
But the site, which is currently open to federal employees, is having a slow- go on its aim of becoming available to the general public sometime this fall.
OMB’s Associate Director for Performance and Personnel Management Shelley Metzenbaum said the site isn’t quite ready for public consumption just yet, FederalNewsRadio.com reports.
“We are in the kicking the tires stage with Performance.gov,” Metzenbaum said at a Government Executive panel discussion. “What we are doing is not simple. I hope in the not too distant future we can make it open to the public.”
In a memo to the Senior Executive Service—the top level of the federal civilian workforce—OMB Interim Director and Chief Performance Officer Jeffrey Zients announced the public unveiling of the “one-stop shop for federal performance information” to take place later this fall.
OMB asked each agency to set and track certain goals and the website will make it easier to track the progress. The proposals include improving Defense Department hiring practices and increased performance at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, among many other agency goals, Federal News Radio reports.
Once the website is made widely available, the public will be able to search for projects based on theme or type, and the site will also include a section for best practices.
