Brief Description

Publish strategic and performance plans (including NAP4) and reports in open, standard, machine-readable format.

Objective(s)

  • Comply with the spirit of section 10 of the GPRA Modernization Act (GPRAMA)

  • Comply with related requirements set forth in subsections 202(b)(4) & (5) and 207(d) of the eGov Act

  • Comply with guidance set forth in OMB Circular A-130 to use open, machine-readable data standards

  • Lead by example

  • Walk the open gov talk

  • Move beyond rhetorical support for participation & collaboration

  • Move beyond transparency as a theoretical concept

  • Focus effort and funding on practical, clearly documented, achievable, and measurable objectives

  • Facilitate the sharing of strategic and performance plan and report data

  • Facilitate the establishment of benchmarks & the pursuit of continuous improvement

  • Enable taxpayers to see what they are getting for their money

  • Enable policymakers to make more informed, evidence-based decisions about public programs and projects

Description

Agencies will comply not only with the letter but also the spirit of the law by publishing in open, standard, machine-readable format (ISO 17469-1 & ANSI/AIIM 22:2017) not only their GPRA plans but also their program and project plans and reports.

As a byproduct of doing so, they will also comply with the GPRAMA requirement to compile a program inventory as well as related provisions of the eGov Act, which require agencies to:

  • Work together to link their performance goals to key groups, including citizens, businesses, and other governments, as well as internal Federal Government operations; and

  • Adopt open standards (e.g., StratML) enabling the organization and categorization of Government information in a way that is searchable electronically and interoperably across agencies.

Performance Indicators

  • Publication of agency GPRA plan updates in open, standard, machine-readable format by February 2018, as required by GPRAMA

  • Development by nongovernmental organizations of sites and services leveraging .gov performance data to inform and engage various stakeholder groups

  • Compliance with the requirement set forth in the eGov Act to link agency objectives to stakeholder groups

  • Ease with which citizens and policymakers -- including members and committees of Congress -- can find, understand, compare, and use performance data of interest to them, such as in considering inherently governmental functions, agency reorganization proposals, and budgetary priorities

  • Degree to which agencies use such data to improve their performance

  • Ability of members of the public to see and comprehend timely and up-to-date metrics on implementation of the objectives ("commitments") set forth in the NAP itself

  • Degree to which other OGP nations apply the good practice set forth in section 10 of GPRAMA

If any other countries are publishing their strategic plans and performance reports in open, standard, machine-readable format, it would be good to recognize them for such leadership.

The NAPs would be a logical set of plans with which to start.
