Office of Planning and Performance Management

The Office of Planning and Performance Management's goals are to support data-driven decisions through evidence building efforts, shifting away from compliance activities and toward actions that will support the availability of high-quality data and transparency, to ensure programs and projects deliver critical services to the American public efficiently and effectively. 

The Office is headed by a Director who reports to the Deputy Assistant Secretary – Environment and Policy Management.  The Director performs the function of Deputy Performance Improvement Officer, established under Executive Order 13450, Chief Evaluation Officer, established by the Foundation for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act of 2018 (Evidence Act), and Chief Risk Officer, in compliance with OMB Circular A-123.

This is accomplished through the following activities:

  • Integrated Strategic Planning
  • Performance Management and Reporting
  • Evidence and Evaluation
  • Enterprise Risk Management
  • Program and Project Management
