The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) uses the Program Assessment Rating Tool (PART) to assess federal programs. The PART is a series of diagnostic questions used to assess and evaluate programs across a set of performance-related criteria, including program design and purpose, strategic planning, program management, and results. PART results are then used to inform the budget process and improve program management to ensure the most effective and efficient usage of taxpayer dollars.

To date, State and OMB have conducted 39 PART reviews for State's programs. Twelve new PART reviews were conducted in 2005 for inclusion in the President's FY 2007 budget submission to Congress. No reassessments were conducted for programs reviewed in previous years. Preliminary scores for the current-year assessments rate three State programs as "Effective," one program as "Moderately Effective'" and eight programs as "Adequate."

Recent results from PART reviews conducted by OMB are summarized below by strategic goal. Information is provided describing how bureaus have addressed and implemented findings and recommendations for each of the PART programs.
