The President's Management Agenda

FY 2007 Financial Report
Bureau of Resource Management
November 2007

The President's Management Agenda (PMA) is the President's strategy for improving the management and performance of the federal government, with a focus on delivering results. Each quarter, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) releases an executive scorecard that rates agencies' overall status and progress on PMA initiatives. The scorecard employs a color-coded grading scale of green, yellow, and red commonly used by businesses today: Green for success; Yellow for mixed results; and Red for Unsatisfactory. A summary of the Department's FY 2007 Fourth Quarter Scorecard is provided below. For more information on the PMA and the executive scorecard, please visit
